Coming from their property in Napa's Oak Knoll District, the Heitz 2018 Quartz Creek Chardonnay displays notes of sea salt, Meyer lemon, tangerine zest, orange blossom, and wet stone, which are all supported by the tension and weight of pristine Chardonnay grown over a bed of Quartz rock. The brilliant acidity from early harvesting is balanced by the fullness that can only be achieved with 14 months of lees aging. A lower percentage of new oak, hovering around 10%, gives a lift to the wine while the 90% that was aged in neutral French oak ovals providing freshness and length. We are thrilled to introduce this exquisite wine as this vineyard’s inaugural release and to reintroduce Heitz Cellar as a grower of age-worthy, classically driven Chardonnay.
