Legend Vineyard Exclusive


Voluptuous whites are richer in texture, thanks to riper fruit. Most are dry wines that feature the added flavor complexity of new oak barrel use, but a handful are lusciously-sweet late-harvested dessert wines.

FOOD PAIRING: Ideally suited to richer dishes and cooked foods, like GRILLED OR FRIED SEAFOOD, POULTRY & WHITE MEATS, plus dishes featuring BUTTER, ONIONS or NUTS.

Tasting Notes

Bright and clear, pale gold


Our 2021 LVE Chardonnay is full, rich and balanced. The nose boasts aromas of white fruit, star jasmine and honeydew melon. 


Full, rich and long on the palate, it’s reminiscent of crème anglaise and toasted brioche with a hint of nutmeg and citrus zest.

Vintage Notes: 

Our Chardonnay comes from vineyards in Carneros which is a sub AVA of Napa. The vineyards are on a blend of soil types ranging from sandy soils to slightly heavier, clay-based soils. The heavier soils allow for a gentle maturation which provides a richer mouthfeel while the sandy, sloped vineyard provides an aromatic lift. Together, the fruit harmonizes to great a well-balanced Chardonnay.
