Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were night harvested (to retain freshness and quality), hand picked, and delivered cold to the winery. Following harvest, grapes were crushed and carefully whole-cluster pressed to extract the juice and minimize tannin extraction from the skins. The wine was 100% barrel fermented with native yeasts in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Sonoma Reserve Chardonnay is a bright wine with crisp acidity and vibrant freshness. The nose is a sweet bouquet of vanilla, crème brûlée, pear tart, and pineapple. On the palate, hints of fresh lemon citrus and lime zest marry with green apple and subtle oak. A full-bodied wine with a lingering finish, this Chardonnay pairs with grilled shrimp, poached salmon, and turkey braised with herbs and spices.
