Watch our interview with owner Ana Keller on the SIP Virtual Wine Tasting series!
Keller Estate’s Oro de Plata (“Gold from Silver”) is a bright, mineral-driven wine made of 100% Chardonnay from the winery’s estate vineyards. This gorgeous wine shimmers with a light yellow color – almost like sunshine glistening through the glass. The nose offers a depth of aromas – fresh golden apple, crisp pear and tart pineapple, with subtle mineral, white peach and orange creamsicle notes. Bright and textured on the palate, each sip leads to a lingering, full finish and will continue to impress as it opens up in your glass.

- Fruit for this wine comes from 3 vineyard sections. Block 6, planted in 1998 to the Wente Clone, is the floral and aromatic backbone of the Oro de Plata. The second block is planted to Robert Young clones, adding a rich texture to the wine. Block 5 was planted to Clone 4 in 1989 (the oldest vineyard) and provides structure and bracing acidity, along with bright apple and pear flavors.
- Aged in neutral oak barrels without malolactic fermentation
