The hue of this Chardonnay is a brilliant light straw color. The nose opens with expressive notes of citrus, lemon peel, crème brûlée, and honey. It all comes together on the palate with yellow apple, lemons, roasted marshmallow, and hazelnut. The mouthfeel balances a vivid acidity with a cool minerality on the finish.
Enjoy this food-friendly Chardonnay with smoked salmon with lemon aioli and toasted brioche; spot prawns sautéed with garlic, lemon, and parsley; or a Caprese salad with ripe peach slices, basil, and fresh mozzarella.
Each of Sonoma County’s most prestigious regions for growing Chardonnay offers a remarkably distinct fruit profile. Most of the grapes for our 2019 Chardonnay were sourced from the coolest sections of the Sonoma Coast appellation, closest to the Pacific Ocean. With cooler, moderate growing temperatures, the fruit from our vineyards brings elegant minerality and bright, pure, mouthwatering flavors together with a hint of richness.
