Sourced from vineyards in west Sonoma Carneros, this chardonnay vineyard enjoys lengthy growing seasons of temperate days and cool nights. 2014’s growing conditions produced higher acids resulting in higher citrus flavanoids. This wine was fermented in stainless with 100% barrel malolactic fermentation and aged entirely in oak (25% new) for eight months.
Our Chardonnay fruit is grown at the Kiser Ranch, part of the Sangiacomo Family Vineyards located in western Sonoma Carneros. First established in 1974, our Chardonnay grapes are sourced form a newer block planted in 2007 of the Robert Young clone. The vineyard soil is comprised of Zamora silty clay loam & Huichica loam.
Aromas of honeydew, apples, and honey greet the nose. Crisp apples along with hints of tangerines and vanilla fill the mouth and finish with elegant tannins and pleasant acidity.
