Aromatics Fresh lemon curd tart, candied lime rind, lemon cream and hazelnuts, lemon grass, fresh thyme, ripe honeydew melon, mandarin, and lime blossom. The palate is Bright and wildly expressive with fine acidity and long mineralogy perfectly matched by a lush and fresh lemon/lime zest on the mid-palate. Graham cracker cheesecake crust, lemon cream brioche with honey, and wildflowers complete the long elegant finish.

93+ Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard Roberts Road gives a restrained nose of fresh lemons, lime leaves and crushed rocks with hints of grapefruit peel, peach kernels and white pepper. Medium-bodied, tightly wound and with fantastic tension in the mouth, the palate reveals fantastic intensity and depth, finishing long and minerally. 250 cases produced."

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The fruit was hand-harvested at night. Clones were kept separate; the whole cluster was pressed. Native yeast began primary fermentation in an egg-shaped vessel. Primary and malolactic fermentations were finished in 30% new French barrels & neutral puncheons over a period of 12 months, 6 months of battonage. Clones were blended after 12 months & finished in stainless steel for five additional months. Lightly fined and bottled unfiltered.
Food Pairing Notes
Spring risotto with asparagus and freshly shaved pecorino, roasted rainbow carrots with honey-butter glaze, and Linguini con Vongole.
