...only 600 cases... ...Copious notes of pineapple, mango and guava along with wet stone, caramelized citrus, tangerine and orange marmalade... ...full-bodied mouthfeel... ...One of the greatest Chardonnays I have ever tasted...

This is full-bodied, elegant and graceful, gliding along on the finish, where the flavors echo ripe fruit and toasty oak.


United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.


White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
