Patz & Hall Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012
"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. The natural richness and mouthcoating density of the vintage is supported by sophisticated hints of minerality and a refreshing structure that adds length and focus." -Winery
