Winemaker Notes

Named after Aubert's famed vineyard manager, Ulises Valdez (UV), and located at his home estate on Stoetz Lane (SL), this vineyard is one of only a few in the far western reaches of the Sonoma Coast. Only six miles from the Pacific Ocean, the maritime influences here are omnipresent, with warm, sun-dappled afternoons refreshed by cool ocean breezes. Aubert and Valdez collaborated nearly 10 years ago on the planting of this magnificent vineyard of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

The 2015 UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay showcases its cool coastal origin, but with Aubert flare. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Sense of place is displayed in the wine’s flinty mineral, apple blossom and sweet herb aroma. A botanical impression is present in the mouth as well with lemon thyme, finger lime and green tea oil. More classic flavors of baked apple and marzipan are carried by laser-like acidity. Tightly wound, the 2015 UV-SL will take a couple years to relax and then drink superbly well for a decade or more. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay UV-SL, which is also an Old Wente clone, and the coldest of all of the Aubert Chardonnay sites, should come close to being a perfect Chardonnay with a few years of age. Plenty of exotic fruits, intense richness, an incredible, fragrant nose of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, caramelized citrus, white peach and a subtle hint of pineapple are all present in this incredibly full-bodied, rich, thick wine buttressed by considerable natural acids. This wine should drink well for at least a dozen or more years.
Range: 97-100

Stone and mineral aromas with sliced apple and lemon. Flint. White peaches. Full body, bright acidity and a tangy finish. Long and tight. Very long. Energy.

Aubert The Passion of Elegant Farming Winery Image

Mark Aubert’s Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs have risen in popularity at a dizzying speed. Aubert’s career in winemaking began in 1989 at Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, which led to his time at Colgin, Sloan, Futo and then Bryant Family, before founding Aubert Wines with his wife Teresa in 1999. His wines express the essence of singular terroirs with an effortless grace. Mark crafts the wines of Aubert to speak to a variety of wine lovers with one thing in common – selective palates that expect nothing but the best.

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

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.
