Natalie's Score: 91/100

Sonoma Coast vineyards enjoy a long, cool growing season due to the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean, and its fogs and winds that blow inland. This is perfect for slowly ripening grapes to develop complex flavours and nuances without lots of sugar that translates to heavy alcohol. Classic Californian Chardonnay with toast, oak and green apple on the nose. Full-bodied, and generously layered. Generous flavours of pear and peach on the palate with a long, dry finish and a hint of wild white flowers in a spring rain. Perfect for roast chicken or mild curries. This wine is matured in both new and seasoned French and American oak for seven months which rounds out the package with a toasty finish. Chardonnay food pairings: pasta, hodge podge, lobster with mayonnaise, roasted chicken, pork with a creamy lemon sauce. Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

The Sonoma Coast region has become recognized as one of the premiere appellations for Chardonnay. Cooling ocean breezes and morning fogs provide the conditions necessary for the development of ripe grapes while maintaining bright acidity. This classically styled Californian Chardonnay consistently delivers notes of toast, citrus and ripe fruits with a crisp acidity. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.
