    Winemaker Notes

    The ideal 2012 growing season gave this Chardonnay abundant fruit expression and beautiful balance. With each swirl and sip, this wine fills your senses with lush white peach, ripe pear, Golden Delicious apple and Meyer Lemon notes. Hints of mineralsand citrus blossoms, characteristic of coastal Chardonnay grapes, meld with fragrant vanilla-spice notes from oak aging. Barrel fermentation, partial malolactic fermentation and aging the wine on the yeast enhanced its opulent, mouth-coating texture, whilenaturally crisp acidity gives the wine liveliness.

    Pair with: Delightful to sip with cheeses, especially triple cream Brie. Also enjoy with grilled halibut, pasta with pesto or cream sauce,sautéed chicken breast, and creamy soups.

    Acacia, California
    Acacia Winery Image

    Acacia takes its name from the lone Acacia tree that once stood on this Los Carneros vineyard. The tree stands tall against the cool winds from San Francisco Bay signaling the chilly conditions that give this region one of the longest growing seasons around. Cool temperatures, dense clay soils and extended hangtime on the vine all combine to yield Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of rare power and complexity. Gentle handcrafting brings out the full expression of this special terroir, for wines with layered varietal character over silky texture.

    California

    Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

    This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
