“Made in an elegant, austere and refined style, this tastes of apple skin, pear and just a hint of peach. With well-integrated oak providing a foundation, it has a rich underbelly of baking spice.” VIRGINIE BOONE

Description

VINEYARDS

The Sangiacomo family have been farming in Sonoma for over 100 years, and we’ve been making wines with them for 35yrs.  Well known for their attention to detail, the result is a complex and vibrant Chardonnay reflective of the Carneros region.

Appellation: Carneros

Clones: Robert Young, Beresini, Cabral, Catarina, Old Wente, Dijon 76, 95, 809, 548

Terroir: The Sangiacomo vineyards are found in western Carneros, known for their loam and clay soils and a mixture of flat land and rolling hillsides, which has the reliable marine fog that rolls in every evening and burns off mid-morning.

TASTING NOTES

Zesty notes of lime, kumquats and  green pineapple, with powdered lily aromas.  On the palate this wine is energetic from the start with tangy citrus, white peach and cloves.

Suggested Pairings: Braised chicken thighs with Meyer lemons and olives, whole grilled fish, and Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam or Cabot Clothbound Cheddar cheeses.
