Number 22 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!
Winemaster Comments: When I choose the fruit that will ultimately make the Sbragia Limited Release Chardonnay, it sort of comes from a gut feeling. The grapes need to taste complete and able to stand on their own, exhibiting total balance and richness. I look for something I call a 'totally yummy,' unctuous quality that needs no blending to round it. With each winemaking decision I make - like which particular barrels will perfectly match and enhance the fruit - I try to coax every layer of flavor out of the grapes and create a wine that is as much about personal expression as vineyard character and quality.
