2017 / Chardonnay

2017 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay

Our Damaris Reserve Chardonnay is a selection of the best Chardonnay lots that Landmark Vineyards makes each year. For 2017, the Damaris Reserve Chardonnay is crafted from two of our favorite cool-climate vineyard sources, The Flocchini Vineyard and the Sangiacomo Family’s Kiser Vineyard. The Flocchini Vineyard lies on the eastern portion of the newly approved Petaluma Gap AVA, a region that experiences a windy, cool, long growing season. The Sangiacomo Family’s Kiser Vineyard in the Sonoma Carneros AVA is the other highly valued source for this vintage. These two cooler sites allow the Chardonnay fruit to maintain balance and acidity while developing fully mature flavor profiles. The grapes used for this wine are the Robert Young and Old Wente selections, both known for their ability to produce fruit of outstanding character.

TASTING NOTES

Vibrant lemon yellow with slight green and sliver highlights and aromas of meyer lemon, Asian pear, yellow apple skin, buttered brioche, and subtle hints of flint and white pepper. On the palate, it’s full- bodied with ripe lemon, green and yellow apple fruit on entry. As the palate evolves, a fuller and rounded meyer lemon appears along with complex, savory elements of oak, lightly buttered toast with herbal and floral notes. The finish is long, crisp and textured with sustained ripe fruit and a subtle saline, mineral texture.


FOOD PAIRINGS

Our 2017 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay is a special wine that speaks to its origins in southern Sonoma with an uncommon balance of ripe fruit matched with a crisp, mineral, almost saline texture that makes this an excellent pairing for a wide variety of food as well as a candidate for aging. While oysters can come to mind, a classic Sole Meunier, a sautéed filet of sole served with a simple pan sauce made with white wine, lemon and butter with a garnish of parsley showcases both the wine and the food beautifully.
