This is a SUPERB Chardonnay with a great vineyard and winemaking pedigree... not surprising we only got a small quantity. Happy days indeed!
Grapes were picked from Sangiacomo Vineyard, well known for growing ultra-premium Chardonnay throughout Sonoma County. With the majority in the nearby Petaluma Gap and the Sonoma Coast region, select wineries source fruit from this premium grower and make exceptional wines.
Grapes were picked in the cool early morning hours, and immediately to press the delicate fruit and chilled to preserve freshness. 100% barrel fermented for 9 months in French oak barrels, of which 25% was new to add complexity & richness. Extended malolactic fermentation fine-tuned the body and perfected the mouth feel.
