The McManis family has been growing grapes in this region since 1938.McManis Family Vineyards currently operates over 2500 acres of winegrapes and after the 1997 harvest, a state-of-the-art winery was designed and built to maximize the resulting wine's quality through small lot handling, whole cluster pressing and barrel storage and fermentation.
The 2013 McManis Family Vineyards Chardonnay has a medium straw color. Tropical fruit, citrus, poached pears and Banana scents come from the fruit grown in the River Junction appellation and the fermentation process. Additional notes of Vanilla and Hazel Nut are contributed from oak aging. The tactile impression of this wine is dense and rich. The flavors that the nose has promised are abundant and the wine has a soft, lingering finish.
