Pedroncelli Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Citrus, peach and floral notes in the bouquet lead to flavors of fresh peach, green apple, a touch of lemon, and tropical fruit. The blend of the two Chardonnay lots adds both fruit forward qualities and a creamy texture. Highlighted by bright acidity, the wine finishes crisp with a fine lingering finish. Drink now-no aging required.

Since 1927, when John Pedroncelli, Sr. purchased vineyard and a small winery in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley, two elements remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family farms vineyards, and the family's dedication to making fine wines. John Pedroncelli began his winemaking career as a child working side by side with his father, John Sr. learning from the ground up. After World War II and his service in the US Coast Guard, he graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College and then attended many winemaking classes at University of California at Davis. John’s style is Pedroncelli’s style—wines that are flavorful and balanced to reflect the region’s characteristics—he allows the wines to speak for themselves. As a family winery who has farmed for 80 years in the Dry Creek Valley, we want the next generations to be able to continue farming in an environmentally sensitive way. The most important statement we can make about our wine is that we are here for the long term and protecting the environment is one way we will achieve that goal. At Pedroncelli Winery, we practice sustainable winegrowing and, over the years, we have been reducing water use, building healthy soil, and protecting the vineyard environment. This is a comprehensive approach to vineyard management that involves all aspects of farming including human resources, viticulture, soil management, water management, pest management, habitat management, and wine quality. Tasting Room Our tasting room is open 10am to 4:30pm daily, except major holidays. Read less

A half bottle of delicious Sonoma County Chard from one the oldest and most established producers in the reagion. The Dry Creek Valley microclimate bring ideal ripeness to the Chardonnay grapes in the Pedroncelli vineyards bringing a rich wine with a hint of oak barrel aging. 375 ml

Wine Tasting NotesClear light straw color. Wonderfully complex nose of citrus, tropical fruit and peach! Touch of toasted oak to complement, not overwhelm, the flavors and aromas. Full bodied, tart, and true-to-varietal character. Long finish of fruit and touch of spice.
