Arrowood Sonoma Chardonnay 2001
In the glass, the 2000 Sonoma County Chardonnay offers up a mouth-watering array of intriguing flavors and aromas. Loaded with fruit, it comes at you from all directions.
The fruit for our 2000 Sonoma County Chardonnay comes from three exceptional vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Each vineyard reflects its distinct terroir and contributes different nuances and characteristics to the wine.
Fermentation & Aging
Because the fruit is grown in a relatively cool climate, we put it through barrel and malolactic fermentation to balance out the crisp acids and give the wine a rich and creamy texture. Sur lies aging and stirring in French oak barrels adds hints of toasty oak and complexity to the blend
Arrowood is 100% Sonoma. Since 1986, the winery has been producing high-character wines from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards west of the Mayacamas Ridge. The winery is located in the historic Sonoma Valley, a small sub-appellation in the heart of the county. This rolling AVA is particularly well-suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, Arrowood's signature wine.
