Sonoma Coast


Winemaker’s Notes

Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is produced with the minimal use of new oak, to allow the bright varietal character to shine through. It was harvested from select vineyards located in the Sonoma Coast appellation, including the cooler microclimates of western Carneros, southern Sonoma Valley and the Petaluma Gap. It has a spicy apple aroma with hints of nutmeg and cream. Silky textured, it has delicate flavors of fresh fennel, pear and ripe apple. Try it paired with aged cheeses such as Gouda or Manchego, or with delicate seafood dishes, soups and pastas.

Chef Kristine’s recommendation

Bright and vibrant, this wine has a long finish with good acidity. It’s wonderful when paired with French dishes and sauces- this wine just sings with rich recipes! Try with seafood, cream soups, some pates (rillettes), lemon thyme, thyme, roasted garlic, Chanterelle mushrooms, caramelized onions, and mild, (or creamy!) Thai flavors such as coconut-based soups, or sauces with little or no heat.
