Wine Of The Week - 2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay


Two years ago, Noisy Water Winery ventured into new territory… after nearly ten years of creating wines from grapes from other vineyards and growers, our winemaker acquired one of the largest vineyards in the state and started growing his own fruit. Despite the fact it was sadly neglected and in need of a lot of TLC, he took it, named it “Forbidden Desert Vineyard”, put it under the care of a master grower, and coaxed a harvest from 30-year-old vines. 

2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay, the fruit of that first harvest, was fermented in oak and aged in French oak barrels, giving it a definite oak profile that is characteristic of Chardonnays. A hint of fruit on the nose leads into a balanced, buttery finish of vanilla that calls to mind rich, baked Golden Delicious apples. 

2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay

Fruit from 30 year old vines fermented in oak, then aged in oak to exhibit the beauty of the fruit, and its ability to become one with the oak.


Chardonnays are commonly thought of being the quintessential Thanksgiving Day wine, but our  Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay will not be confined to a particular season or holiday. The buttery finish matches that of rich seafood dishes like crab, halibut, and linguine with clams or a decadent pork tenderloin with apples. Raise a glass and see the light shine through its clear, golden depths and bask in the glow of a truly fabulous wine!


“…a big voluptuous chardonnay is like Marilyn Monroe -round, bosomy - you can remember that chardonnay…”
— Karen MacNeil, author of “The Wine Bible”
