2017 SCV Chardonnay, Antonio Mountain Vineyards, 750ml

2017 Chardonnay
Antonio Mountain Vineyard, Sonoma Coast


$40.00   per 750ml bottle


Vineyard Notes
Antonio Mountain Vineyard is situated four miles from the cold waters of Tomales Bay; this special vineyard was one of the pioneer vineyards of the Sonoma Coast. Planted in 1992 in the far southwest corner of the Sonoma Coast, it’s both a challenging yet ideal site for Burgundian varietals.

Vintage Notes
The 2017 growing season was a bit of a roller-coaster with heavy winter rains leading to vigorous vine growth in spring. Bloom came early, in parallel with an eclectic range of springtime temperatures. Moderate early summer temperatures gave way to several heat waves throughout the summer and into fall, heightening the rate of ripening and flavor development in the grapes, and ushering in a slightly early harvest.

Winemaker Notes
The nose opens with faint aromas of honeysuckle, apple and white peach, leading to a palate that is nicely weighted with spicy vanilla and endowed with flavors of melon and sweet baking spice. The finish is lengthy with slate-like minerality.
