While Shafer is known the world over for their iconic Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon and Relentless Syrah, they also produce one of California's most exquisite single-vineyard Chardonnays. The Red Shoulder Ranch is Shafer's estate vineyard in the cool-climate Carneros appellation, ideally suited for balanced and nuanced Chardonnay that never lacks in ripe fruit expression. The wine undergoes aging in 75% oak, 25% stainless steel and is never allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. The result is an utterly singular wine with structural and textural balance that are rarely found in luxury Napa Chardonnay. According to long-time winemaker Elias Fernandez, "This 25th vintage of our Chardonnay offers abundant, exotic aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, apricot, pineapple, grapefruit zest, and honeydew melon all held together with seamless structure, elegant balance, and energy that comes from pure, clean acidity."
