Joseph Carr Chardonnay Carneros 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

I fell in love with Burgundy 20 years ago. I could only dream of one day having a chance to make a wine so inspired by the vintners and négociants of the Côte dOr. It was after making an acquaintance with one grower from the Sonoma Coast of California, who shared my passion and agreed to collaborate with me, that I was able to make this very limited wine. This 500 case production reflects the importance of terrior and the attention of minimal intervention. This Sonoma Coast Reserve Chardonnay offering is a tribute to my early days and echoes the sentimental passion for the Côte dOr, and what I believe the Sonoma Coast of California has to offer.

Tasting Notes:

My first impression is the scent of crème brulee, lemon zest and vanilla, followed by citrus blossoms and pineapple. All of the aromatics are complex and compelling. The flavors reflect the aforementioned bouquets and are surrounded by bracing minerality and acidity that provide structure and balance.
