2021 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

$55.00

Cool coastal influence abounds in this Chardonnay, brimming with fresh energy. Perfumed citrus swirls with pear, crushed almond, and an earthy, wet-stone minerality expressing the region’s savory appeal. Juicy citrus on the palate gives way to complex layers of white stone fruit and herbs, while a backbone of vivid acidity carries the wine through a beautifully textured finish.

Winemaker Notes

VINTAGE 

The 2021 vintage gave us beautiful wines by way of a challenge. In the second year of our most recent drought, winter brought only small, infrequent rains on the Sonoma Coast, followed by widely fluctuating early-spring temperatures. The dearth of moisture and mixed weather messages slowed canopy development, and ultimately resulted in smaller clusters. Patience and hopeful perseverance paid off, though, as mild temperatures prevailed through the end of the growing season, encouraging even, optimal ripening. Small berries resulted in lower yields, but when the grapes began hitting the crush pad—slightly earlier than usual in August—the superb quality of the small vintage was clear, in outstanding purity, complex flavors, and dense textures.
