94Wine Enthusiast

This gorgeous rendering comes from the owners of Reuling Vineyard itself made famous years ago by the likes of Mark Aubert... orange blossom and steely wet stone... pear & almond paste... aching complexity on through the fig-infused finish.

91Vinous / IWC

Mineral-accented aromas of honeydew, nectarine and orange zest, with sexy floral and iodine notes adding complexity. Offers palate-staining pit and citrus fruit flavors and notes of anise and toasty lees.

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
