2019 - Vineburg Chardonnay

Sweet Meyer Lemon, honeysuckle and flinty mineral aromas define the fruit character of our Sonoma Carneros vineyard, Vineburg. Weekly bâtonnage gives the wine a silky texture, and small stainless steel barrel fermentation highlights the vibrant, refreshing character of the wine made from this vineyard.

Vineburg Chardonnay
Reviews 92 points Tasting Panel, Meridith May, November/December 2021 issue
90 points Wine Enthusiast, Virginie Boone, June/July 2021 issue Tasting Notes Delicate aromas of green apple and bright minerality carry over to the palate, with ripe mandarin and honeydew melon. Light- to medium-bodied; the vibrant fruit and robust acidity create a seamless texture and structure with great tension and length. Vintage Notes The beginning of the 2019 growing season was defined by copious rainfall and late soil moisture. The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive
wines. The relatively mild finish to the season, not without its moments of unpredictability, helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with abundant hang time. All in all, exceptional fruit with bright acidity and ample
texture.
