White Wine by Benovia from Sonoma County, California. Maybe the most Burgundian Chardonnay in our portfolio, this seductive Chardonnay displays explosive aromas of lime blossom and William Pear with underlying mineral notes. On the palate the wine displays tension between bright acidity and cool-climate structure framed with flavors of nectarine and lemon custard. This wine is delightfully elegant upon release but will continue to gain complexity with bottle age for 3 to 5 years. This Chardonnay comes from two selected blocks in the Three Sisters Vineyard, which resides on the third coastal ridge from the ocean, near the town of Seaview. The low-fertility soils and the cool temperature near the Pacific Ocean produce a distinctive Chardonnay. This bottling comes from two blocks within the vineyard both planted to Chardonnay clone Dijon 76, 95 and 96. Harvested at night, the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to whole cluster pressing and barrel fermentation with indigenous yeasts.
