Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Smoking Loon "Steelbird" is Chardonnay with a difference. The winemaker kicked the oak to the curb aging this wine for five months in 100% stainless steel. The wine opens with layers of juicy and ripe honeydew melon, followed by steely notes of citrus. Vibrant, yet creamy on the palate from 100% malolactic fermentation, with its refreshing flavors of lemon curd and pineapple; it's sure to become an instant summer favorite. This wine will pair nicely with a wide variety of dishes, from homemade tropical salsa and chips to a garden salad with lemon grilled chicken or even a simple white pizza.

Wine Spectator
A zesty grapefruit edge accents the core of this juicy mix of citrus and green fruits. Refreshing and clean, this ends with a dash of pithy citrus peel.

California’s most praised white wine, Chardonnay is also the state’s most planted white grape variety. Diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredible range of wine styles.

Chardonnay planted in the cooler, coastal zones takes on bright characteristics like lemon zest, key lime, green apple and wet flint. For this style, look to the chilly Sonoma Coast, Carneros, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Highlands and Edna Valley.

The inland zones of California’s coast, such as the Russian River, Sonoma, Napa and Livermore Valleys maintain a more Goldilocks-esque climate where both styles go. Early picking retains acidity and creates a leaner style but leaving the grapes to hang creates an approachable Chardonnay, balancing richness and finesse.

Chardonnay also plays a major part in the sparkling wine production of the Anderson Valley and Carneros.
