2017 / Chardonnay

2017 Sangiacomo Chardonnay

The 2017 Sangiacomo Chardonnay is sourced from the Sangiacomo vineyard, situated in the cool and windy western Sonoma Carneros region just north of San Pablo Bay. This appellation is highly regarded as one of the finest places to grow Chardonnay in California. The venerable 2017 Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay is sourced from two separate blocks of grapes at the Kiser Vineyard. These distinctive blocks are planted to the highly desired and low yielding Old Wente selection, with its characteristic uneven berry sizing.

Tasting notes

Pale yellow color with aromas of ripe citrus, stonefruit, butterscotch and oak. Nearly full body on the palate with complex layers of ripe lemon, subtle apricot, yellow apple and lemon curd on the entry. The mid palate develops savory herbal and oak notes and butterscotch leading into a long, fresh finish showing sustained ripe fruit and lemon verbena herbal notes.


Food pairings

This wine is a great pairing with rich seafood dishes like lobster Thermidor or try it with our winemaker Greg Stach’s favorite cheese, Langres, a creamy French cow’s milk white rind cheese.
