Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay Founders Reserve Legacy 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"As the second offering in our Winemaker's Release series, Legacy is an exquisite selection born of our passion for creating the very finest Chardonnay. To craft this exclusive 'best of the best', we brought together the talents of our three head winemakers over the years and asked them to hand-select barrels within our 2012 vintage. The results speak for themselves - a truly unique cuvée that captures the 30+ year legacy of winemaking at Sonoma-Cutrer.Truly an expression of the Winemaker's art; this wine is rich and complex with diverse aromas of apple, peach, nougat, caramel, honey and crème brûlée. Look forward to a creamy, plush mouth feel accented with flavors of peach, pear, ripe apple and toasted pecan. Lemon acidity with a cream note leads to a classic, crisp Sonoma-Cutrer finish." -Winemaker's Notes

  When you think of Sonoma Cutrer Vineyards, think of Chardonnay. Not just because they make award-winning Chardonnay, year after year, but because it’s a part of who they are. Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards was founded as solely a vineyard in 1973, but in 1981 they took the first step to making themselves truly famous: they built a winery. Not just any winery - founder Brice Cutrer Jones met with many knowledgeable winemakers of the time and came to a conclusion: the winery should focus ONLY on Chardonnay. This allowed the winemaker, Bill Bonetti, to focus all of his attention to perfecting one thing, boosting the quality of its wine dramatically. It wasn’t until 1992 that the winery acquired Pinot Noir cuttings and started branching out, still only with a total of two wines. Today, Michael Schroeter, current winemaking director of Sonoma Cutrer, continues to craft award-winning wines. Read less
