Lively and impactful, this vibrant chardonnay is crisp and bright with aromatics of zesty citrus and light salinity. This chardonnay will brighten any day, or mood!

This coastal wine has zippy acidity that bounces on the palate and plays nicely with the honeysuckle, lemon and citrus blossom flavors with hints of cedar and minerality.

Winemaker Notes

Bohemian Vineyard in Green Valley is located on the same ridge as the famed Heintz Vineyard, only ½ mile away as the crow flies, just to the east above the Sonoma Coast town of Occidental. In contrast to Heintz’s westerly slant, Bohemian faces back to the east. This area is one of the best for cool climate chardonnay and allows us to produce the focused and pure style we seek.

Vineyard Notes

The soils here are of the classic Goldridge series, light and well drained. The vines in this tiny plot are densely packed to 3x4 spacing to promote competition between the Hyde clone Chardonnay vines. Banshee is the sole recipient of this special fruit. The The temperate growing season of 2018 allowed for delicate aromas and flavors to develop slowly in these Chardonnay blocks.
