A blend of grapes from several excellent vineyards in unique cool climate areas across Sonoma County, our signature Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is consistently noted for its excellent value and superb balance.



Tasting Notes



   The wine is pale straw gold in color. Delicate floral aromas introduce this wine followed by lemon citrus and peach stone fruit notes. This wine has a soft entry with an essence of spice from a pie crust and candied orange peel flavors. There is pronounced weight in the mid-palate and finishes with a crisp yet lasting lemon citrus zest on the tongue. This vintage produced about 32,000 (750 ml) cases



Winemaking Notes



   All grapes went direct to press as whole clusters and then gently pressed. By pressing as whole clusters we can keep the wines delicate and bright. After settling, most of the juice was racked into French oak barrels for fermentation, 20% of which were new. Once the wines completed primary fermentation and a secondary, malo-lactic fermentation, the barrel-fermented lots were aged on the lees for six months, with occasional stirring to increase richness and body. To emphasize fruit aromatics a select few lots were fermented in stainless steel tanks and never went to barrel. The final blend was assembled prior to bottling, which ran the first two weeks of June 2014.
