Since 1979, Acacia Vineyard has been making world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines from the Carneros region of Napa Valley. We founded A by Acacia® to expand our passion for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to other distinctive California wine regions, including select vineyards in the Central and North Coast appellations. Each of our wines displays exceptional balance and the expressive fruit, floral and mineral characteristics inherent in each vineyard.
Wine maker notes
To achieve the balance of fresh fruit expression, texture and complexity, Tom barrel fermented 75 percent of the Chardonnay juice and cold fermented 25 percent in tanks. Partial malolactic fermentation rounded the acidity and added hints of crème brûlée to the lingering finish. The wine was stirred (bâtonnage) during six months of sur lie aging to integrate flavors and enhance silkiness.

Technical notes
Total Acidity: 0.61 g/l 13.6% abv pH:3.4

Producer
Acacia has always taken an idealistic view. It comes from our unshakable faith in the tremendous potential of the windy hillsides of Carneros, overlooking San Pablo Bay. Long before the climate of this American Viticultural Area (AVA) was recognized as ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Acacia’s pioneering founders were convinced of it. Their goal when they launched Acacia was to achieve a certain balance in Pinot Noir that, at the time, existed only in French wines. They wanted to make a single-vineyard California Pinot Noir that was both complex and delicate—a wine that heightened the enjoyment of food, making everything a little more delicious. Today, that quality is what draws aficionados and novices alike to Acacia wines. It’s what has helped put Carneros on the map. And it’s what continues to inspire winemaking at Acacia after more than 30 years, from the ferocious belief in the possibility of this place to the artistry of capturing its essence in a glass.
