Description

Napa Valley native and winemaker, Tony Coltrin, brings more than 40 years of winemaking experience to Oberon, with expertise in sourcing quality fruit from the best vineyards in the valley and understanding the region’s uniqueness for growing classic Bordeaux varieties. His long-standing relationships with local growers ensure a consistency in the quality of the grapes grown in premier Napa sub-appellations for Oberon.

Vineyard

Our Oberon Chardonnay grapes are sourced from vineyards located within the sub-appellation of Los Carneros. Highly influenced by the San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Bay, Los Carneros provides the perfect combination of summer fog, warm days, cool nights and a long growing season which make it an ideal location for growing our Chardonnay grapes. Tony prefers sourcing this fruit from exclusively the western facing slopes of Carneros, for the extended exposure to the warm afternoon sun and the cooling influence western afternoon breezes.

Vinification

Thanks to a wonderful growing season which provided perfectly ripened grapes, Tony Coltrin was able to make an expressive, approachable and fruit forward Chardonnay. Having undergone simultaneous alcoholic and malolactic barrel fermentation, spending 9 months sur lie in 33% new French oak.
