Winemaker Notes

This golden Chardonnay finely balances layers of intense fruit with the natural acidity and minerality characteristic of the Fort Ross coastal climate. Generous aromas of white flowers, autumnal pear and honeydew melon lead a complex palate of succulent apricot, sweet peaches with a drop of honey and spiced hazelnuts. Bottled unfined and unfiltered contributes to the seamless silky texture and lengthy focused finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
A brilliant Chardonnay. Almost nothing quite like it out there. Great, zesty acidity makes the mouth water, and oak is strongly there but perfectly vindicated by the power of the underlying flavors. They suggest ripe pineapples and tropical fruits, peaches, honeysuckle and a firm, stony minerality that has to come from the soil. For all the richness, the wine is terrifically dry.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Fragrant peach, honeysuckle, hazelnut and spice notes join a touch of anise. Smooth, rich and creamy, this glides along gracefully.

Fort Ross Vineyard, Sonoma County, California
2009 Chardonnay
Nestled on a sunny coastal ridge, overlooking the Pacific Ocean a mile below, Fort Ross'"True Sonoma Coast" vineyard is one of the closest, if not the closest, to the ocean in all of California. From the vineyard you can see the breaking surf and the misty silhouettes of Bodega Head and Pt. Reyes far below. The vineyard's high elevation above the coastal fog and its proximity to the ocean provide a gentle, sunny and temperate climate that has proved to be very favorable for the slow and even ripening of Burgundian varietals.
