In 1972 Jim Barrett, son of a Waterford immigrant, purchased the historic 100 hectare property which lies 3.5 kilometres north of Calistoga, at the base of Mount St. Helena. Under Jim Barrett’s guidance the château’s vineyards were replanted and a modern winery was installed and in 1976 his vision was rewarded by winning the famous ‘Judgement of Paris’ when his Chardonnay beat 4 white Burgundies and five other Californian Chardonnays in a blind tasting that rocked the wine world.

Tasting Notes

Opens with rich peach and cut apple aromas. Lychee and rose high tones along with wet stone and spice round out the nose. Soft and round entry on the palate with great weight and acid balance, this wine offers juicy layers of apricot and white peach flavours. All rounded out with a long rich finish of spiced pear tart.
