2015 Shafer Chardonnay, Red Shoulder Ranch


Winemaker Notes

The 2015 vintage endowed this Chardonnay with a profusion of exotic, fresh aromas and flavors – honeydew melon, pineapple, plantains, honey, creme brulee, and mandarin peel – all made more enticing with bright acidity and a long, rich finish.

Critical Acclaim


Wine Enthusiast

Always impressive in its grasp of power and grace, this white is memorable from start to finish, beginning with a dark golden-hay color that dazzles in the glass. A strong floral component of jasmine invites on the nose, while sparkling acidity maintains a freshness amidst the integrated oak and delicious flavors of honeyed pear and crème brûlée.


Wine Spectator

Rich and spicy, featuring an elegant mix of baked apple, honeydew melon, pear and light minerally notes. Ends full and persistent, with a long, layered aftertaste. Drink now through 2021.
