Our Oakville Chardonnay was fermented and sur lie aged for ten months in 32% new French oak barrels, 42% neutral French oak barrels, and 26% stainless steel barrels. The resulting wine is radiant yellow in color and displays aromas of flower blossom, white peach, passion fruit, guava and candle wax. Flavors of lemon curd, pie crust and a rich yet bright acidity flow into a long persistent finish.

Wine AdvocateI can't remember tasting a Chardonnay from O'Shaughnessy in the past, but the 2014 Chardonnay from Oakville (which sees about one-third new French oak) displays elegant Chablis-like, steely, citrus oil and lemon rind notes with some underlying minerality. It is medium-bodied, pleasant, and competent, but hardly inspiring. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
