Delicato Family Vineyards has released a 2016 Chardonnay under its Z Alexander Brown range. Z Alexander Brown 2016 Uncaged Chardonnay is the first white wine in the Z Alexander Brown portfolio. 

The range, which launched in 2016, is a collaboration between musician Zac Brown and Napa Valley winemaker John Killebrew.

"We wanted to craft a food-friendly, versatile Chardonnay - in a bold style with excellent acidity and balance," said Killebrew. 

Grapes for the Chardonnay were sourced from the Santa Lucia Highlands American Viticultural Area in Monterey, California. 

The Z Alexander Brown wine portfolio includes Uncaged Red Blend, Uncaged Cabernet Sauvignon and Uncaged Pinot Noir. 

Last year, Delicato purchased the Central Coast California Blossom Hill Winery from Treasury Wine Estates. The transaction did not include any wine brands, but provided Delicato with an additional 4m cases of growth capacity.
