2017 Blue Wing Vineyard Chardonnay

Estate

Winemaking Notes

Our Petaluma Gap Chardonnay has aromas of pineapple, golden apple and hay. On the palate, this wine is bursting with honey crisp apple, fresh minerality and a creamy mouth feel, ending with a smooth, butterscotch finish. The extremely low yielding vineyard led to a wonderful concentraion of flavor in the finished wine. We regularly stirred the lees during the 15 months of water bent French Oak barrel aging to add richness and texture. The remaining nportion was cold fermented stainless steel where malolactic fermentation brough additional character to the wine.

Food pairings

Enjoy this with an Asian salad, spicy seafood pasta or lemon garlic chicken.

History

The Vineyards

Situated in the Southern and Western end of Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast is a distinct region that is directly influenced by the Pacific Ocean and is known to produce Chardonnay of exceptional complexity with true varietal and terroir characteristics unique to the region. Our Sonoma Coast Blue Wing vineyard sits at the very closest point to the San Pablo Bay within the Petaluma Gap. The Petaluma Gap channels coastal fog and sea breezes to the vineyard every late afternoon, where cool nights and warm days of filtered sunlight bring out the very best in our Chardonnay. The longer, colder growing season results in harvests well into October at times, producing elegant complexity and character with our Blue Wing vineyard delivering true to the appellation distinct wines that are crisp, elegant and a beautiful representation of Sonoma Coast.
