This character bodes well for a long, blossoming future. The tight, closed nose on the surface hints at green apples with a whiff of pineapple. With a little time in the glass, the spicy floral bouquet shows up carrying tingly lemon and tangerine aromas, supported by a core of spicy peaches and cream. The charm of this cold climate Chardonnay is that its charms are layered and subtle, revealing themselves with a little time and a little attention. Pure, clean, refreshing…and now I’m getting a soft and subtle sensation of fluffy lemon cream.
Description

Details

Winemaker Notes - This wine is produced from two vineyards that are part of the Sonoma Coast appellation. Both are cold sites, but not icy cold, so we obtain the wonderful crispness of fresh, ripe fruit - typical of a cold climate Chardonnay, but without the austerity that icy cold areas can deliver. Clone 6 Chardonnay from one vineyard, and Old Wente Clone from the other, compliment each other in so many ways. By the way - hold a glass of this pale gold wine up to the light of a window and you’ll see the proof that we do not filter our wines…all the intensity, and a few particles, go into the bottle. The shy tightness of this wine at this stage is a characteristic of Chardonnay that has been aged on its lees with weekly stirring. This character bodes well for a long, blossoming future.

The charm of this cold climate Chardonnay is that its charms are layered and subtle, revealing themselves with a little time and a little attention. Pure, clean, refreshing…and now I’m getting a soft and subtle sensation of fluffy lemon cream. Taking a sip, the first impression is of the flavor and bright acidity of little green apples. Citrus peel, citrus deserts….mainly lemon…with air tend to taste of tangerine. It’s compelling that the flavors are so bright and refreshing, light and delicate, yet the feel has substantial volume. Nuances come and go in the long, mouth-coating finish of lemon and oak-tinged minerality. Plenty of minerality.
