Peirano Estate Vineyards Chardonnay

Peirano Estate Vineyards Chardonnay


  • Juicy, buttery, rich Lodi Chardonnay with a healthy kiss of oak!

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay

Elaboration: This Chardonnay is barrel aged in French and American oak barrels, 15% of which is new wood. Lees were stirred every two weeks once fermentation was complete, allowing the wine to gain complexity and structure.

Tasting Notes: The vibrant color and aromas of fresh picked pears, ripe melon, and yellow apples instantly fill your senses and are complemented by hints of toast and spices. The mouth fills with complex flavors of sweet, rich, red and yellow apples, juicy sweet honeydew melons and baked apple pie. Soft hints of spice and vanilla round out the wine to produce a very seductive, lingering finish.

The man in the awesome red shorts is Lance Randolph, and he is on a mission. His mission is to make the best wine to ever come out of the Lodi Appellation. Lance’s great grandfather, Giacomo Peirano, arrived in San Francisco in 1879 from his home in Genoa, Italy. By 1881, he started farming in Lodi, and year by year he steadily gained a place for himself pioneering vineyard and orchard development. Planted in the early 1880’s, Peirano Estate was one of the first vineyards in Lodi. Located in the very heart of the Lodi Appellation (granted in 1986), Peirano Estate Vineyards grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Viognier, Barbera, Petite Sirah, and has perhaps the largest single block of old, head-trained, natural rooted Zinfandel left in the state of California.

Nestled between the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Lodi has an ideal Mediterranean climate with deep, rich, sandy-loam soils and abundant quality water. These factors combine to make Lodi a major producer of quality wine grapes. Beginning with the hard work and inspiration of Giacomo Peirano, five generations have grown and harvested grapes from these vineyards for over 100 consecutive years.
