The Petaluma Gap channels coastal fog and sea breezes to the vineyard in late afternoons where cool nights and warm days bring out the very best in our Chardonnay. The longer, colder growing season produces elegant complexity and character delivering true to the appellation wines that are crisp and elegant.
Growing close to the bay leads to salinity in the soils which means lower yields, more concentrated fruit, and a hint of salinity in the wine. Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is predominantly barrel fermented in new French oak, conveying a toasty vanilla and spice complexity within the wine. The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay brims with notes of apple, pear, pineapple and lemongrass.
