2013 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
GOLD MEDAL - 2015 Sonoma County Harvest Fair
Indinoli Vineyard is located on Vine Hill School Road in the Santa Rosa Laguna region, known for it's cooler temperatures, foggy mornings and sandy soils. It is planted to a mix of Old Wente, Robert Young, and #4, #8 and #809 Clones of Chardonnay. This clonal variation takes advantage of the varied aspects of the vineyard and adds great complexity to the wines from this site.
Straw green yellow in the glass, this rich Chardonnay embodies what was a near-perfect vintage for coastal Sonoma Coast vineyard sites. The nose is focused and precise – green apple, Meyer lemon, kiwi and kefir lime. Supporting notes of toasted shortbread, vanilla and cut grass round out the aromas. On the palette, clean citrus zest acidity balances out the full body and rich fruitiness. The barrel fermentation lends to a creamy, luxurious texture and a hint of sweet baking spices. The finish lingers with wet rock, pineapple and key lime.
