Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is brimming with apple, pear, pineapple and lemongrass with a core of bright acidity and a long toasty finish. This wine was barrel fermented in new French oak creating toasty vanilla and spice complexities in the wine. We regularly stirred the lees during the 10 months of barrel aging to add richness and texture. The remaining portion was cold fermented in stainless steel, where malolactic fermentation brought additional character.
Enjoy this wine now with crab cakes, chicken salad or a roasted turkey breast or cellar for enjoyment in 2 to 4 years.
A mild, dry winter encouraged early bud break in Sonoma County in 2014. The growing season was very warm overall, but tempered by some overcast days in late July and late August plus a heavy drizzle in early September. We harvested this Chardonnay from our vineyard in Sonoma Coast on September 7.
