Winemaker Notes

The word Panthera is believed to be of East Asian origin, meaning ‘the yellowish animal’ or golden yellow. As a reflection of this moniker, we have crafted a striking golden-yellow Chardonnay that is opulent in style and beautifully textured. This inaugural vintage offers yellow stone fruit aromas that lead to delicious flavors of peach, white pear and grilled pineapple. The gorgeous frame of fruit encompasses layers of well-integrated toasty oak and hints of crème brûlée. Panthera Chardonnay is unctuous but focused with a bright acid core that persists through a satisfying, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is the second vintage of this wine. Fruit comes primarily from Dutton vineyard. The 2017 Chardonnay Panthera charges out of the gate with energetic white peach, lime leaves, fresh apricots and lemongrass scents with wafts of honeycomb and nutmeg. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, it has an enticing oiliness to the texture and plenty of racy freshness to balance, finishing long and savory.

Wine Enthusiast

Voluptuous and oaky, this robust, richly layered wine offers dense flavors of graham cracker, caramel and pineapple. Lush on the palate, it has charm and body to spare, delivering full-bodied vanilla and nutmeg on the finish
