Winemaker Notes

The color is a brilliant pale yellow with tints of green. The nose shows freshly cut yellow-fleshed peaches with some underlying subtle barrel fermentation characters. The palate is rich and full, though tightly structured, showing a combination of poached stone fruit and sweet grapefruit flavors. The wine will develop over the years and the flavors will meld into a soft, clearly varietal Margaret River chardonnay. Ideal to accompany fish and shellfish or any full flavored white meat.

Alcohol: 14.0% by volume

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
