Thornton Winery’s Reserve Chardonnay is the first reserve-designated wine made by Winemaker David Vergari. David decided to ferment some of the juice in brand-new French and Hungarian oak barrels and leave it on the lees for six months to add complexity and mouthfeel. This wine is a departure from our 100% stainless steel-fermented Chardonnay so it merits being a Reserve wine. We think you’ll enjoy its richness as well as its crisp acidity.
