The Wolf – 2019 Chardonnay – Carneros, Napa Valley
The wolf is one of Montana’s most important predators and has roamed the landscape and influenced the ecosystem for thousands of years. Wolves live in packs and communicate through body language, scent marking, barking, growling and howling. When a wolf wants to challenge another wolf, it will growl or lay its ears back on its head. Barking is used as a warning, and howling is for long-distance communication to pull a pack back together and to keep strangers away. Wolves are undoubtedly a complex and important symbol in Yellowstone, representing both the enemies that encircle the Yellowstone Ranch and the ones that protect it.
We introduce you to The Wolf. This beautiful Chardonnay is carefully crafted from fruit of the chalky soil and cooler climate of Carneros in southern Napa Valley. This wine was aged in French oak for fourteen months and displays a beautiful balance of fruit, oak and liveliness on the palate. Its balanced fruit with tarte acidity makes this wine a classic example of premium Napa Valley Chardonnay.
