Announcing The 2010 Jarhead Chard

July 29th, 2011

One cannot live off red wine alone…After all, you have to mix in a little white wine once in a while!

In that spirit, we are pleased to announce the release of the 2010 Jarhead Chard, the successor to the inaugural 2009 vintage. We introduced Jarhead Chard to showcase our lighter side and offer a companion to our signature wine, Jarhead Red.

The 2010 Jarhead Chard comes from two of the Firestone family’s estate vineyards in Santa Barbara County—Kingsley Vineyard and the Curtis Estate. The grapes were picked in the cool morning hours to preserve fruit integrity and freshness. After gentle pressing, the wine was fermented in a combination of stainless steel and French oak to maintain crisp flavors and aromatics while bringing roundness to the palate. The wine was aged on the lees for enhanced textural richness.
