2011 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

2011 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

Our 2011 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is an exceptional example of the subtlety and balance that can be attained with prized fruit from this region renowned for remarkable chardonnay. The inviting nose conjures up a mélange of citrus, rich lees, and hazelnut. In the mouth, hints of vanilla and cookie dough tease the palate, with layers of grapefruit, orange blossom and light minerality beckoning. Framed ever so delicately with prized French oak (16 months aging), this vibrant wine with its hint of freshness, delicate texture and remarkable balance, should age with graceful refinement.

About This Wine:
Among our preferred vineyard sources, the Charles Heintz Vineyard, located in Occidental, near the rocky Sonoma County coastline provides the backbone of this notable Chardonnay. The 30-year-old vines are planted on deep, desirable Gold Ridge Sandy Loam top-soils – to which many attribute the unique varietal expression shown by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the Sonoma Coast and Russian River appellations. The nearby Pacific brings deep and cooling fog over the vineyard nightly during the growing season, encouraging patient ripening and the development of delicate flavors.

Winemaker Notes:

Philippe Melka, Bordeaux-bred (Chateau Haut Brion, Petrus) and– recently heralded by Robert Parker as one of the top nine winemakers in the world. “Where possible, I will minimize winemaking techniques in the cellar so I can create a wine that tells the story of the vineyard. In the end, it must be about the fruit.”
