Palate Profile

From the time Starmont first appeared on a label in 1989, the name has been recognized for classically styled varietal wines that are expressive and approachable. Now, nearly 30 years later, led by Winemaker Jeff Crawford Starmont is producing some of their best wines ever as part of the Merryvale Family of Wines. 

Medium straw in color; aromas of D’anjou pear and Golden Delicious apple with hints of lemon curd and vanilla custard; fresh acidity and a long, refreshing finish.

Enjoy on its own or pair it with roast or grilled chicken, lightly creamed pastas and seasonal salads.

Critic Awards

Both barrel and stainless-steel fermented, this is a bright, balanced white wine that shows a juicy core of pear and apple. Lively and weighty, it has substance and style within a context of vibrant acidity and earthy stone.

A pretty tight Napa chardonnay with cooked apples, cream, crushed cement and hints of flint. It’s medium-bodied with a tight, firm finish. Drink now.
