    Winemaker Notes

    The 2015 Smoking Loon "Steelbird" Chardonnay represents the true characteristics of Chardonnay, free from the influence of oak aging. 100% stainless steel aging allows vibrant aromas of pineapple, melon, pear and golden delicious apple to shine through. Refreshing yet rich flavors of pineapple, melon and apple are rounded out by a pleasant citrus acidity. With a creamy, silky mouthfeel--obtained by re-suspending the lees during tank aging--and persistent finish, our unoaked Chardonnay is in a league of its own. A lively palate and tropical finish make this a versatile food-pairing wine. Serve with light appetizers, seafood, grilled vegetables and spicy Mexican or Indian dishes.

    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.
