2017
Chardonnay
Gold Ridge Hills


$30.00   per 750ml bottle


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
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 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.
