Cobblestone Chardonnay 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking Notes: Cobblestone Chardonnay is made entirely from the fruit of our cobblestone-laden family vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation of central Monterey County As with our previous two releases, the 2005 vintage reflects our philosophy of presenting true varietal characteristics without unnecessary interference. With stainless steel fermentation, French oak aging in a mix of large and small barrels, and very limited malolactic fermentation, the result is the best of both worlds. If you like the idea of crisp Burgundian complexity balanced with the brightness of New World fruit, look no further. Tasting Notes: A bright, straw-colored wine, which offers orange blossom, lilac and sweet corn in the nose. The crisp palate adds caramel apple, lemon and clean minerality. A long, dry finish reveals subtle toasty oak. This well-balanced and complex wine will pair remarkably with a variety of dishes ranging from the most delicate Dover sole to a hearty duck cassoulet. Technical notes: Appellation: Arroyo Seco, Monterey Winemaker: Sam Baxter Harvest: September 21st, 2004 Brix: 26.0° Fermentation: Stainless steel fermented, aged sur lees for 6 months in French oak – 50% new barriques, 50% two-year puncheons Production: 540 cases Return to Cobblestone Wine List

From his humble beginnings on a Michigan farm, Saul Levine became an FM radio pioneer in 1959 launching Mt. Wilson FM Broadcasters in Southern California. Levine’s radio success helped him get back to his roots, and with his wife Anita he started Cobblestone Vineyards. For over 30 years Cobblestone only grew grapes for premium California wineries, until 2004 when the Levines released their own wines under the Cobblestone label. These limited production, single-vineyard wines have since received consistent acclaim from the top critics and publications, and are featured at many of the nation’s premier restaurants and wine shops.
