"A staunchly Californian Chardonnay with the essence of white Burgundy. The crisp acidity shines in this food-friendly Chardonnay and is balanced by a backbone of warmth, think notes of vanilla and ground almond. The Sonoma Coast fruit coming from this vintage is just spectacular, a great year for Chardonnay."  Cristie Kerr

Tasting Notes
Striking notes of vanilla bean, sage, Asian pear, crushed white stones, and pastry flour, with a fantastic weight. The palate opens up to citrus blossom, honey, almond, fresh fruit, and flowers, with a lovely minerality on the long finish. Great freshness, eureka lemon, vibrant acidity, and a nice length.

The 2019 vintage was a glorious, cool year, beginning with copious spring rains which brought us beautiful, healthy canopies. The vintage was reminiscent of the stunning 2018, yet the wines have their own hallmark of vibrant freshness, terrific intensity, bright acidity, silky entries, and long, driven finishes. Pinot and Chardonnay triumphed in this vintage. There is much to love about the wines from this beautiful vintage.
Philosophy
This classic Sonoma Chardonnay is made from two notable vineyards along the coast of California - 'UV' Vineyard and Lucky Well Vineyard. Sitting just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the marine influence plays a heavy hand in fruit development. Maintaining bright acidity throughout the ripening process and soaking up enough sunshine for brilliant flavors to evolve. It's everything we love about a coastal Chardonnay. Delightful with sage butter chicken over a bed of rich parmesan polenta. Or consider serving it with salmon rillettes as a starter.
