THE VINEYARD
The Sangiacomo family has been farming in Sonoma County for multiple generations. La Follette works closely with them for specific alterations to the rows the Sangiacomos farm for our use making this a truly distinct single vineyard wine. Green Acres Vineyard benefits from the moderating temperatures and maritime breezes preserving the acid and balancing the fruits intensity, especially on the Old Wente clone.

THE WINE
Theres an enticing deep golden yellow color with tinges of green implying a concentrated, youthful vintage. It is immediately complex with forward aromas of baked apple, lemon curd, vanilla, hazelnut, and pain grillé. Ripe pineapple flavors with a mineral expression come in on the palate where richness is deftly balanced by mouthwatering acidity and freshness. This wonderful tension draws you in for more with this dynamic Chardonnay. Pairing this wine is easy with salmon rillettes, an
asparagus bok-choy frittata, crab cakes (horseradish cream if you like a bit more heat), or chicken Dijon. You can never go wrong with cheese, try Garrotxa, a Spanish goat cheese, Camembert, or even an English Stilton. Enjoy today or cellar for 2-4 years.
