Two Squared By Alpha Omega Chardonnay 2018
Patterning itself after the top estates of Bordeaux, Alpha Omega offers a dynamic second wine brand, Two Squared. These wines are designed to be approachable in both flavor and price. Opulent, fruit-driven and generous, with a backbone of acidity and elegance, these wines are produced by masterful blending across terroirs evocative of Napa Valley’s modern style. TWO2 is the best of both worlds in its inspiration and creation.
About the Vineyard
Alpha Omega winemakers acquire fruit from younger Napa Valley vineyards that display a silky tannin profile and opulent texture which allow for early accessibility. We have unearthed a range of privately-owned boutique vineyards, hidden gems tucked in secret pockets of Napa Valley, that only Mother Nature and our winemaking team are fortunate enough to touch.
2018 was a dream growing season and harvest for Napa Valley. An abundance of rain in February was followed by continuous days of sunshine and mild temperature that made for a uniform vines and even cluster growth. With no major heat spikes to contend with, there was no need to rush through harvest. Cooler temperatures allowed us to pick when we wanted, without stress and under optimal conditions. The gift from Mother Nature translated to wines that not only have great concentration but also amazing freshness.
