AXR Napa Valley

2015 axr ganzin chardonnay

2015 axr ganzin chardonnay

Ganzin is a reference to Victor Ganzin who is credited with the hybridization of the AxR1 rootstock. The AXR rootstock was the origin of the research which gave vintners an understanding of the influence of a rootstock on wine and a vines capacity to adapt to the soil. To us, Ganzin Chardonnay represents the crossing between traditional winemaking and modern technology paying homage to the soul of AXR.  This Chardonnay spends 14 months in 30% new French oak to respect the fragile profile of the Burgundy clones that we use. The Chardonnay is then transferred into stainless steel for an additional 3 months to sharpen the acidity and tension of the wine. Only 46 cases were produced of this wine.

Tasting Notes:

On the rim: shiny, white gold with hints of green and mercury 

On the nose: explosion of brioche, apricot, mango, jasmine, cashew nuts and crème brûlée 

On the palate: fresh entrance of pear, pineapple, white chocolate and citrus lingering on banana and grapefruit
