The aromas of this classic Chardonnay are dominated by honeysuckle with fruit notes of lemon zest, lime leaf, and ripe white peach. There is an underpinning of oak giving a bit of lift and a hint of meringue, but it is far from overbearing. The palate entry is bright and clean, moving quickly from green apple into complex citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. Good mass and density are countered with crisp linear acidity which is in turn balanced by a subtle oak sweetness. The long finish rounds it all off with fresh lime and juicy peach. Enjoy this Chardonnay with grilled fish, roasted chicken, or just a summer evening among friends.

Dennis and Judy Groth are natives of the Santa Clara Valley, now known as Silicon Valley. Dennis began his career as an accountant and became a CPA in 1968. In early 1978, he became Chief Financial Officer of Atari, a games and electronics subsidiary of Time Warner. Between 1978 and 1984, Dennis held a number of leadership roles at Atari, including President of the Consumer Products Division and President of the International Division.  

In 1981, the Groths purchased a 121-acre vineyard parcel in Oakville, Napa Valley, and in 1982, they added a second vineyard of 44 acres located south of Yountville. These vineyards are the primary source of grapes for the Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines produced by Groth Vineyards & Winery.  Dennis and Judy Groth moved their family to Oakville in 1985 and have been residents ever since. Today, Dennis is Chairman of the Board, and Judy plays an active role in the look and feel of the winery. 

Since Day One, the Groth family has been present in the business every day, and that is not likely to change in the future. Today, second-generation family member Suzanne Groth is custodian of the business, and for sure, there will be other Groth family members who follow her. Suzanne shares her parents’ love for Oakville, Napa Valley and the unique agricultural preserve that has been developed here.

Vibrant and well-structured, with a savory essence to the apple, pear and quince paste flavors. Sea salt and dried tarragon accents emerge on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2024.

This wine offers creamy elements of melon and stone fruit. It has a richness of pronounced oak that works well with the soft texture and overriding opulence.
