Chardonnay

Clean, crisp and refreshing fresh fruit structure with mineral highlights. Perfect for a wide range of foods or enjoyed on its own.

Clear with pale lemon hues, the wine bursts with aromas of fresh pear, citrus, and wet stone. Lifted notes of white peach, green apple,
and white flower mingle with crisp acidity and chalky texture, leading to a long and juicy finish, capturing its Sonoma Coast origins.

Sonoma Coast

The vineyards along the Sonoma Coast feature marine influences that define this sweeping appellation, an area that stretches from the San Pablo Bay all the way to the Mendocino County line.

 

 

The Sonoma Coast American Viticulture Area (AVA) covers over 480,000 acres, with roughly 7,000 acres planted with vines.  Temperatures are moderate, with evenings dipping to 40s as a result of the fog off Bodega Bay and day time highs typically in the low 70s.  Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding, with the end result truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured.
