Our 2019 Sonoma County Chardonnay is a light golden color with aromas of fresh apples, citrus and nectarine. The palate is rich yet crisp, with flavors of apricot, baked peaches, lemon and vanilla. 

Winemaker Notes

Upon opening, delightful aromas of fresh Fuji apple, nectarine and buttered toast fill the nose. This well-balanced Chardonnay is rich with flavors of juicy Asian pear, baked peaches, zesty citrus and toasted oak. Notes of butterscotch linger on the smooth finish. — Mark Beaman, Winemaker

Production Notes

The fruit was hand harvested and delivered to the winery in the cool, early hours. The grapes were sent direct to press with a gentle cycle to extract the best cuts of the juice. After two days of settling, the wine was transferred to barrels for primary and malolactic fermentations. The wine was sur lie aged with lees stirring every two weeks to enhance the aromatics, texture and flavors. After 18 months of aging in French oak (100% new), the wine was bottled on August 18, 2020.

Vineyard Notes

For more than four decades, Sonoma County has been one of the premier regions in California for Chardonnay. Our multiplicity of climates and soils provide a broad range of sites perfectly suited for this noble grape. Our 2019 Sonoma County Chardonnay is made entirely from the cool, foggy Carneros region, which is ideal for full bodied well-structured Chardonnay.
