The Smoke Tree conversation started in 2013 among a small group of Northern California winemakers and viticulturists. Having worked together in various projects across Napa and Sonoma, we shared an increasingly common belief that somewhere along the growth in popularity of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, affordable options had strayed too far from their varietal beauty.
With long established relationships across the valley, we partnered with specific growers with exceptional fruit; all are sustainably cultivating their vines, and some are organic. The Smoke Tree team shares a commitment to sustainable agriculture and non-interventionist winemaking techniques. With each vintage, we invest time and patience to craft wines that are true to the beauty of the fruit. 2014 was our first vintage.
Vibrant and balanced, Smoke Tree Chardonnay offers aromas of stony mineral, pear and honeysuckle. The palate is clean and mineral-driven with tones of pear and white nectarine. The finish is long with firm mineral tension. Smoke Tree Chardonnay is delicious whenever wine comes to mind. For creative culinary opportunities, pair Smoke Tree with seasonal salads, roasted poultry or locally-sourced shellfish. -Winemaker’s Notes
