2012 Matanzas Creek Chardonnay Journey Sonoma

Share on Facebook

2012 Vintage has been one of the most stellar vintages in decades. Vineyards were at their maximum potential. Blooming, fruit settling and growing were perfect. Vineyard tasks were concentrated on leang to increase air circulation, but leaving some shade to avoid sun burn. Every block was particularly selected, fermented in selected barrels and tasted individually. Journey comes from our best Chardonnay blocks from which only the best barrels were selected to cra this Journey Chardonnay.



There are few wines that make you forget all about descriptors and move you by a pure hedonistic pleasure,and this is one of them.



 



Tasting Notes:  



Pear and Golden delicious apple cobbler, orange blossom, Meyer lemon zest, hazelnut, marzipan, and roasted marshmallow.  





Mouthfeel:   



Candied ginger, mandarin orange zest, and assertive texture. Persistent and impecable nish.
