Alpha Omega Chardonnay Napa Valley Californien 2015
Like Meursault with an American accent. This is actually a very good way to describe Alpha Omega's wonderful Chardonnay! In the 2015 vintage, the grapes (100% Chardonnay) come from the fields of Caldwell, Parr, Los Olivos and Razi. The wine is both fermented and aged in casks - 100% French oak, of which 30% are brand new casks. An opulent and luxurious white wine with fullness and complexity. Alpha Omega is located in the Napa Valley of California. The winery was founded by Robin and Michelle Baggett, who moved here in 2006. Robin had previously (1998) founded Tolosa Winery in San Luis Obispo, but was now ready to try his hand at the unique terroir a little further north in the Napa Valley. However, the couple is not alone in the task: they also have winemaker Henrik Poulsen with them, who has 19 years of experience in both Europe and Napa Valley. And if you think it sounds Danish, then you are absolutely right - Henrik grew up in Nexø. Alpha Omega owns fields in Rutherford, and especially worth mentioning is Thomas Vineyard - a kind of "field laboratory", where they with advanced technology can make accurate measurements of water, weather and maturity, as well as the eponymous Alpha Omega 1155 Vineyard ( after the address of the vineyard) where it says primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
