Winemaker's Notes

2002 was a perfect vintage for Sonoma Chardonnay, especially from Green Valley, because the mornings were so perfectly cool. The fruit came into the winery during harvest at 55ºF - the ideal temperature for retaining the layers of complexity, finesse and most importantly all the zingy flavors we love so much in our wines. The result is an exceptionally bright, exciting Chardonnay that makes you saw "Wow!" when you taste it.

This wine has a freshness and vivacity that makes it especially great with food. Enjoy with rainbow trout, sole, halibut with mushrooms and asparagus, salmon, steamed lobster, lemon roadt chicken served with jasmmine rice, veal, anything with a cream sauce, goat cheese, walnuts - in other words, as often as possible.
