2019 Foley Sonoma Winemaker Series Chardonnay, Alexander Valley
Our 2019 Winemaker Series Chardonnay is a full-bodied wine with aromas of honeydew melon, fresh citrus and yellow pear. Flavors of baked apple and freshly made crème brûlée coat the palate with bright notes of Meyer lemon. The vibrant and satisfying finish offers lingering minerality, leaving your taste buds ready for the next sip.
11 months in French oak (40% new)
After harvest, the fruit was fermented in French oak barrels and aged for 11 months. Regular lees stirring after fermentation enhanced the concentration and complexity of the flavors and aromatics.
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley. Our Chardonnay vines are planted in rich soil that supports the Dijon and Robert Young clones.
