Intense aromas of pineapple, baking spices, and a sharp minerality greet the nose. This wine is dense with notes of lemon curd, Granny Smith apple, and peach on the palate. This wine has a lush and lingering finish. Perfect to pair with baked brie cheese, salmon with butter and lemon sauce, or a Sunday afternoon.
Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is an artistic blend showcasing distinct, hand-picked from the across the vast Sonoma Coast AVA. We source fruit from the foggier sites in the north to the wind-swept vineyards in the south. Each vineyard contributes to the beauty and balance of this wine.
The 2018 vintage was a good one for most of California. The growing season was slow and steady, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, retain acidity, and develop complexity on the vine. A majority of the fruit was harvested from mid-September to mid-October.
