VINTAGE

Sourced from vineyards in Sonoma Carneros, this chardonnay vineyard enjoys a lengthy growing season of temperate days and cool nights. The 2020 vintage was a challenge on many fronts due to extreme wildfire activity in the area. Fortunately, our chardonnay fruit came in right on time in mid-September and avoided the road closures, power outages, and other issues associated with fire. This wine is 100% barrel fermented with 100% malolactic fermentation all in oak barrels, and aged for 8 months with frequent stirring.

VINEYARD

Our chardonnay fruit is grown at the Sangiacomo Family Vineyards, Kiser Ranch located in western Sonoma Carneros. First established in 1974, these particular chardonnay grapes are sourced from a newer block, planted in 2007, of the Robert Young clone. The vineyard soil is comprised of Zamora silty clay loam and Huichica loam.

TASTE

Aromas of pears and white flowers greet the nose. On the palette, crisp pears and honey predominate, leading to a creamy rich and elegant finish—a classic Carneros Chardonnay.
