Late Harvest Shahpar
2012 Signature Chardonnay, Napa Valley
Vintage after vintage, the cooler climates of Darioush's southern Napa Valley estate and historically renowned Chardonnay vineyards in Los Carneros produce wines with more progressive qualities of precision, richness and seamlessly integrated layers of vibrant citrus, stone fruits and delicate mineral tones.
The first vintage to showcase a small portion of fruit from our Mount Veeder estate, our 2012 offering exudes all the desired aromatics of slow-ripening, cool climate Chardonnay–seamlessly integrated layers of vibrant citrus, stone fruits and delicate mineral tones.
Bright and intriguing notes of lime blossom, guava and Meyer lemon curd are balanced by flavors of white peach, Gravenstein apple and Asian pear on a generous, complex palate. The wine is composed and restrained, with a lasting finish that reveals delightful hints of toasted hazelnuts, vanilla and crème brulee.
