2016 Sangiacomo Chardonnay

2016 Sangiacomo Chardonnay
Sonoma Coast

750 ML - $38.00

In 2016, the mature vines at Green Acres began their growth after the risk
of frost had past. During a mild summer, the fruit ripened in a manicured
canopy of dappled sunlight. The Old Wente clone had particularly small
clusters and low yield in this vintage, a stamp of the previous drought year
and some wind during the bloom. The Catarina clone, harvested nine days
later, struggled to ripen in the cooler mid-September weather and brought
a structural intensity to the finished wine.

Striking aromas of lemon rind, wet stone and pastry. A smooth, rolling entry
leads to mouthwatering acidity and vibrant flavors of citrus and verbena.
Transitioning to a mineral expression and structured mouthfeel, the wine
finishes with an emerging tension and freshness. Alternately angular and
polished, this is a truly dynamic Chardonnay.
