2017 SF Chronicle Wine Competition
2017 Winemaker's Challenge
"Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms...In both cases you have to start with top notch raw materials—whether it's the land or a script" -Francis Ford Coppola
2015 was a great year for Chardonnay around the state, especially in Sonoma and Monterey. Great sun exposure and an early harvest brought fruit in at peak ripeness. Sonoma County’s harvest gave us tropical, ripe pineapple tones, and Monterey County contributed crisp, coastal lemon lime citrus.
This wine exudes flavors of tropical pineapple, aromatic Meyer lemon, and fresh baked shortbread. There is a distinctive floral oak spice with a classic Chardonnay minerality. Creamy, ripe fruit, lemon bar, and shortbread cookies open up the palate with a warm toasted oak finish.
