Chardonnay, Wild Oak Vineyard, Sonoma Valley (2012)

Chardonnay, Wild Oak Vineyard, Sonoma Valley (2012)

Awarded a Gold Medal by the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, this creamy Chardonnay shows off tropical aromas of cantaloupe melon, candied pear and honeysuckle that lead to flavors of marzipan, fresh pear and toasted coconut. The finish is soft and delicate.

Fruit for this elegant Chardonnay comes from Sonoma Valley, which is bordered by two mountain ranges: the Mayacamas Mountains to the east and the Sonoma Mountains to the west. The region’s moderate climate and cool breezes prolong ripening and lengthen hang time, promoting natural balance in this wine.

It’s no secret our 2012 harvest was outstanding, with ideal weather and an abundance of exceptional fruit. Warm, moderate temperatures throughout the growing season allowed our fruit to reach the perfect state of ripeness without sacrificing balance and intensity. With no heat spikes, cold weather or rain, the fruit ripened evenly and developed great color and concentration, producing wines with rich flavors and excellent structure.

The fruit is hand-picked at night to preserve the wine’s delicate flavors, aromas and acidity. Grapes are pressed 100% whole cluster, then fermented sur lie with natural yeasts in a temperature-controlled room to ensure slow fermentation. The wine goes through partial, natural malolactic fermentation, creating a soft, balanced mouthfeel. Aging occurs for seven months in 100% French oak barrels, 40% new.
