2021 Zephyr Farms Chardonnay
Nestled just outside the cozy village of Freestone on the West Sonoma Coast, sits the seven-acre vineyard Zephyr Farms. Planted in 2000 on classic Goldridge Soil, the vineyard experiences coastal fog hovering in the mornings and rolling afternoon winds, this results in fruit high in acidity and robust minerality from the Mt. Eden Clone of Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay is a beautiful straw color as soon as it hits the glass. The nose is a wonderful mix of fall pears, golden delicious apple along with brighter tropical notes of coconut and pineapple. On the palate everything explodes with crunchy Asian pear, ripe apricot, and fresh cucumber and creamy notes that cohesively round each sip.
