2014 Blue Wing Vineyard Chardonnay

Estate

Winemaking Notes

Our Blue Wing Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay has wonderful citrus, tropical fruit and white floral aromas. On the palate this wine is bursting with honey crisp apple, lemon and vanilla notes with refreshing and bright acidity. The wine was barrel fermented in new French Oak creating creaminess and spice complexities on the palate. 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 to the wine.

Food pairings

Enjoy this wine with grilled scallops, roasted chicken or a grilled halibut with a lemon beurre blanc sauce.

History

The Vineyards

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. This Chardonnay was harvested from our Blue Wing vineyard on the Sonoma Coast on September 7.
