Chardonnay with age? You better believe it! Fermented 50% in stainless steel barrels and 50% in French oak barrels, our 2014 Chardonnay is just now hitting it’s stride.
The Petaluma Gap is one of the newest appellations in Sonoma County. Our grapes sit on top of a knoll, with an eastern exposure to maximize the early morning sunlight, and give it some protection from the intense direct heat late in the afternoon with cool breezes from the pacific. Great fruit on this wine, a little earth from the loamy soils, smaller berries and cluster give a bit more concentration to this Pinot, which has been barrel-aged for 12 months.
The 2015 Chardonnay gives notes of lemon curd, grapefruit peel and ripe peaches with touches of fresh hay and toast. Medium-bodied, with an oiliness to the texture and crisp backbone.
