Winemaker Erich Bradley Notes
Aromas of citrus, pear, fig and hints of crème brûlée lead to layers of concentrated flavors and smooth textures. Excellent natural acidity gives the wine length and depth. We produced this Chardonnay using a combination of Old Wente clone from the Sangiacomo Vella Ranch and clone 95 from the Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road. These vineyard parcels are both perfectly suited for growing Chardonnay, with cool climates and well-drained soils. The Old Wente Clone selection of Chardonnay at Vella Ranch was planted in 1997 and is known to produce distinctively small clusters, low yields, and result in elegant complex wines. Clone 95 from Roberts Road, planted in 1998, adds minerality and a pointed vibrancy. 91 points – California ...more... Grapevine
