2018 Sangiacomo Chardonnay

2018 Sangiacomo Chardonnay "Roberts Road"

Complex and compelling the 2018 Sangicomo Chardonnay has bright aromatics of lemon curd, freshly cut feijoa, orange blossom, tarragon, raw honey and a subtle touch of flinty notes. On the palate it has a brilliant citrus entry, lemon lime acidity throughout, contrasted beautifully with powerful texture from aging on the lees and a satisfying long finish of lemon tart. Well-drained, silty gravel soil imparts minerality and a complex richness.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Roberts Road is perfect for Chardonnay. Located in the Sonoma Coast AVA and influenced by fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean, it stays blanketed and cooled until midday allowing for gentle ripening. Well-drained, silty gravel soil imparts minerality and a complex richness.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was hand-harvested at night. Clones were kept separate and whole-cluster pressed. Primary and malo-lactic fermentation were finished in 30% new oak barrels over 8 months. The wine then aged for an additional 6 months in these barrels.
