About this Product

The fruit was handpicked then carefully sorted upon arrival at the winery. The wine underwent both native and inoculated fermentation and was fermented in both open and closed top tanks.

About Starmont

Starmont Winery and Vineyards is a Napa Valley wine producer based in the Carneros AVA (American Viticultural Area). The estate's wine range is dominated by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but also includes numerous Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah-based wines. The estate grew out of the Merryvale Family of Wines brand and began with the inaugural release of the Starmont Chardonnay label in 1989. Since, Starmont have expanded and relocated from its original shared facility at St Helena to Stanly Ranch Estate in Carneros. Today, it has a total of 50 hectares (124 acres) of vineyards at this new location and has built an environmentally-friendly winery to accommodate for its increasing wine production. The Starmont winery sits in the heart of the estate and is surrounded by approximately 14ha (35 acres) of Chardonnay, 4ha (9 acres) of Pinot Noir and 2ha (4 acres) of Syrah vineyards, as well as an additional small planting of Viognier.

About California, USA

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of red wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here.

California wineries range from tiny, family-owned boutiques to massive corporations, and price and production are equally varied. Plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Valley area, while Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

About Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a black-skinned grape variety used to produce dry red and rosé wine, as well as sparkling wine. One of the most finicky grapes to grow, Pinot Noir demands a lot of attention in both the vineyard and winery. The combination of quality and complexity in Pinot Noir has made it one of the world’s most popular red wines. Pinot Noir is the greatest wine of Burgundy and proves that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy.

Pinot Noir is typically a dry wine, which means there is little to no residual sugar. Thus, there are minimal carbohydrates, and there is no protein or fat. The caloric content comes from alcohol; a standard 5 ounce pour of Pinot Noir has about 120 calories.
