"For our A by Acacia Unoaked Chardonnay, we chose cool-climate, coastal Chardonnay that is fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel. The result is a wine that fully captures the fresh, pure varietal expression of the Chardonnay grape, without the adornment of oak nuances. With its array of bright, fruit-focused flavors and crisp finish, this food friendly Chardonnay is also perfect for just sipping." - Winery Notes
|Acacia has always taken an idealistic view. It comes from our unshakable faith in the tremendous potential of the windy hillsides of Carneros, overlooking San Pablo Bay. Long before the climate of this American Viticultural Area (AVA) was recognized as ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Acacia’s pioneering founders were convinced of it.
Their goal when they launched Acacia was to achieve a certain balance in Pinot Noir that, at the time, existed only in French wines. They wanted to make a single-vineyard California Pinot Noir that was both complex and delicate—a wine that heightened the enjoyment of food, making everything a little more delicious.
Today, that quality is what draws aficionados and novices alike to Acacia wines. It’s what has helped put Carneros on the map. And it’s what continues to inspire winemaking at Acacia after more than 30 years, from the ferocious belief in the possibility of this place to the artistry of capturing its essence in a glass.
