Background

Darioush Khaledi, a man passionate about fine wines founded Darioush Winery in 1997. Khaledi grew up in Iran's Shiraz region, a wine-growing region until the Islamic revolution - As an adult, he became a devoted collector of fine wines. Located just outside the Stag's Leap District, the Darioush Winery Estate benefits from the cooling marine influence of the San Pablo Bay.

The Estate is primarily planted to the classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Merlot - Extremely limited quantities of Shiraz, Chardonnay and Viognier are also planted on the property.


Tasting Notes

From an alluring aromatic entry to a persistent mineral-laden finish, the 2015 Signature Chardonnay achieves impressive symmetry throughout. A delightful freshness of vibrant lemon curd and orange zest compliments a rich foundation of pear and summer stone fruit flavours.
French oak fermentation and sur-lie aging lends additional complexity with hints of toasted brioche and hazelnuts; while gentle racking preserves the wine’s integrity and nuance without fining or filtration. The 2015 vintage shows remarkable harmony and balance, characteristic of the finest examples of this noble variety.
