Alexana Winery was founded in 2005 by Dr. Madaiah Revana in the Northwestern corner of the Dundee Hills. It’s one of 3 wineries that Dr. Revana owns – the other two being in Napa and Argentina.
The “Signature” Chardonnay is a barrel selection of the best fruit of the vintage. House style here is luscious and creamy. Notes of butter cream, creme brulee, butterscotch and vanilla meringue all make an appearance. This is for lovers of a more rich style of Chardonnay. For that purpose it is truly a lovely and noteworthy wine.
From the Winery:
Each Chardonnay cluster was double hand sorted then pressed whole cluster and fermented for 21-28 days. Once fermentation is complete, the juice is then aged for 11 months in a combination of stainless steel barrel and oak barrel giving the wine a rich, rounded mouth-feel that is well integrated and balanced.
