"Shafer's single-vineyard Carneros-grown Chardonnay is produced from small-clustered clones of grapes selected for their low yields and distinctive flavors. Fermentation takes place within individual oak and stainless steel barrels using native yeasts. The wine matures on the lees for 14 months and since it undergoes no malolactic fermentation this Chardonnay retains a lively natural acidity. The vineyard is named for its Red-shouldered Hawks and other birds of prey, who play an important role in Shafer's sustainable farming practices.

 

A perennial powerhouse white, this delivers gorgeously constructed layers of rich pineapple, guava and mango, complemented by vanilla and baking spice from the oak. A steely midpalate shows bright acidity that lifts the concentration."
