2016 / Chardonnay

2017 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay

The Rodgers Creek Vineyard has provided Landmark with high quality fruit for well over a decade. This ridge-top vineyard exposes the vines to the full force of the afternoon wind coming off the Pacific Ocean through the “gap” and the low fertility soils limit both the size of the canopy and clusters which consistently produces small, frequently seedless intensely flavored berries. The relentless pressure of the mid-day winds in union with the mature vine produce very well-balanced wines, with elegance and sense of place, expressing the “Petaluma Gap” viticultural area.

Tasting notes

Pale straw in color with aromas of pear, green apples, peaches and toasted almonds. On the palate, baked yellow apple, Meyer lemon, grilled peaches and mandarin orange. The mid palate displays a custard creaminess as well as exotic toasted almond and coconut. The finish is long and lingering with bright with orange and lemon zest, and creamy coconut.


Food pairings

Enjoy with chicken alfredo, pork chops, lobster with garlic butter or even turkey dinner.
