Winemaker Jeffrey Blair Notes
Our first ever Chardonnay. And it's really good! We purchased 2012 vintage fruit from our neighbors in the Arroyo Seco, the Ron Panziera family. The Roger Rose Vineyard is one of those classic A.S. sites - cobblestone soils, wind-swept cool climate - perfect for growing elegant Chardonnay. Twenty-five percent of the juice was fermented in new French oak. Fifty percent in neutral French oak barrels. And twenty-five percent was fermented in chilled stainless steel tanks to preserve the beautiful acidity and fruit character. This limited release of only 220 cases is trademark cool-climate Chardonnay. Tropical fruit and citrus character, with just a touch of warm, spicy, vanillin-oak. The wine's structure and refreshing acidity makes it ...more... an incredibly versatile match for a variety of foods: cream-sauced pastas, roast salmon, shellfish, chicken, you name it. We're really proud of this one and look forward to your comments on our inauguaral Chardonnay release...
