Spoken West Chardonnay 2018
Jamey Whetstone moved to Napa Valley from his home in South Carolina to manage Mustards Grill in 1996. Simply captivated by the community, lifestyle, and culture of wine country, he found himself quickly growing roots. By 1998, he had begun his winemaking education at Turley Wine Cellars where he would remain in his apprenticeship until 2005. During that time he spent a summer sabbatical working for the Seysses family at Domaine Dujac in Morey-Saint-Denis and laid the groundwork for Whetstone Wine Cellars, which he founded in 2002. His Spoken West line of wines is an homage to California and California-styled wines. The Chardonnay is unabashedly rich and buttery, showing fresh tree fruit notes layered with vanilla and toasted brioche.
