2016 Sun Chase Chardonnay
One of the most highly sought-after vineyards in the Petaluma Gap, our Chardonnay block sits on a sun-drenched, rocky incline where fruit yields are naturally limited. Sun Chase Vineyard is named for the "sun chasing the fog" in the morning. Sun Chase experiences chilled sunlight that nurtures crisp, refreshing acidity in ripening Chardonnay.
Aromas of Anjou pear and crushed rock, with a hint of wintergreen emerge from the glass. Notes of crisp citrus fruit and blossom introduce a pulse of acidity that persists through to the finish. Deceptively light-bodied on entry, the wine has a long, cooling finish of green apple.
