Patz & Hall Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay embodies the rich diversity of world-class vineyards in the acclaimed Sonoma Coast appellation, and the talents of the gifted winegrowers who farm these sites. Combining fruit from a who’s who of the appellation’s most renowned vineyards, this cuvée harmoniously brings together the acidity, structure and stone fruit flavors of grapes grown on the windswept slopes of Gap’s Crown Vineyard, the crème brulee and graham cracker elements of Durell Vineyard, the high-tone green apple and Muscat character of Dutton Ranch’s heirloom clones and Zio Tony Ranch’s lush and appealing tropical flavors." -Winery

A bit buttery and floral on the nose with a top note of caramel, this seems a bit subdued with a powdered vanilla sugar quality on the nose along with subtle baked apple, cantaloupe melon and flint aromas. This very much weighted towards the back of the palate in though mouth, almost as if it’s crawling along my tongue. It’s round, and smooth but it lacks a center and while it delivers a nice blend of spice and apple fruit that lingers on the moderately long finish this is bit of a one trick pony. Still it offers plenty of weight and richness in the mouth. 88pts

Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay embodies the diversity of world-class vineyards in the acclaimed Sonoma Coast appellation, and the talents of the gifted winegrowers who farm these sites. Combining fruit from a who's who of the appellation's most renowned vineyards, this cuvée harmoniously brings together the acidity, structure and stone fruit flavors of grapes grown on the windswept slopes of Gap's Crown Vineyard, the honey, crème brûlée and graham cracker elements of Durell and Parmalee Hill vineyards, the high-tone green apple and Muscat character of Dutton Ranch's heirloom clones, and the rich peach and spiced pear elements of Sun Chase Vineyard. The aromatics are bright and enticing, with citrus blossom and white flower notes, and refreshing acidity adds a mouthwatering quality that makes this a lovely food wine. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
