Napa Chardonnay wine Adastra Chardonnay from the harvest of 2004 is an organic and top rated wine with a complex taste and aromas of citrus blossom, apple, pear, mineral and talc. It succeeds in combining a vibrant brightness with substantial mouthfeel. It's a full-bodied, richly textured wine. Delicious on its own and excellent with food.
The name Adastra is taken from the Latin saying per aspera ad astra, "through striving to the stars." Adastra strives to produce intense, complex wines that capture the essence of its twenty-acre, CCOF-certified organic vineyard -- a unique combination of fog, soil, grapes and stars in the Napa Carneros. Family-owned, Adastra is run by Chris Thorpe and son-in-law Edwin Richards.
