Shafer Vineyards is regarded as one of Napa Valley's most impressively consistent and best value producers. Established in the mid 1970s by John Shafer, the wines produced here seldom fail to deliver on elegance, complexity and outstanding quality. Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch Chardonnay is a single vineyard Carneros grown wine produced from small clustered clones of grapes selected for their low yields and distinctive flavours. Fermentation takes place within individual oak and stainless steel barrels using native yeasts and the wine matures on the lees for 14 months. Unusually, this wine does not undergo a malolactic fermentation, which imparts an atypical freshness and zesty acidity. Savoury and minerally on the nose, aromas of herbs, white pepper, citrus fruit and honey are all suggested. The palate is textural and rich with a lively structure and wide array of fruit and mineral notes. Spicy and lingering on the finish, this cool-climate Chardonnay would match perfectly with shellfish and light poultry dishes.
