A clean neutral Chardonnay that will appeal to a wide variety of wine drinkers, sure to delight everyone from novice to connoisseur. Pair with foods plucked from the sea or simply breaths of air coming off waves.
VARIETAL: 100% Chardonnay
VINEYARD: Michael Mara Vineyard
LOCATION: Sonoma Coast (close to the town of Glen Ellen)
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Whole cluster direct to press. We transferred the wine into stainless steel for one day, then to neutral French Oak barrels to age for 10 months.
VITICULTURAL AREA: Located just west of the town of Sonoma. Michael Mara Vineyard is planted on top of rocky lobe. Think of a rocky field of vines. It is truly a unique site for Chardonnay in California. Dry farmed with well-drained volcanic and pebbly subsoil. The vineyard is farmed by Steve Matthiasson. Drink now or age like a Chablis.
