Vineyard Notes
Our Gold Ridge Hills Chardonnay is a blend of two vineyards in the western section of Sonoma Coast; Petersen Vineyard and Antonio Mountain Vineyard. In both these sites, the dominant soil type is the highly coveted Goldridge series sandy loam which is ideal for growing nuanced and character-rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Vintage Notes
2016 was another near perfect growing season with idyllic weather throughout the year. Harvest was a bit earlier than usual, with balanced yields of high-quality fruit marked by complex aromatics and flavors. Another stellar vintage for the Sonoma Coast!

Winemaker Notes
The nose opens with faint aromas of lemongrass, apple and pear, leading to a palate that is nicely weighted with toasted marshmallow creaminess and endowed with flavors of melon and sweet baking spice. The finish is lengthy with slate like minerality.
