Peay Estate, Sonoma Coast, California, Chardonnay 2016


Tasting Notes: The nose on the 2016 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is quite pretty, featuring lemon merengue, white peach, ginger and lemon thyme notes. The mouth confirms the nose though there is a pronounced lime and Granny Smith apple fruit profile that carries from the front of the palate to the finish. The wine has medium weight across the mid palate and finishes with a salty, briny flavor on a clean, crisp and long finish. Superb to enjoy now and will age beautifully due to the wonderful acidity and freshness of the style.

Vinous 92/00: The 2016 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is pliant, supple and inviting. Orchard fruit, white pepper, smoke, mint and white flowers give the 2016 lovely brightness and nuance.

Food Pairing: Marries well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

About: All wines are made from grapes grown on our 53-acre estate vineyard located above a river gorge in the far northwestern corner of the Sonoma Coast, 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean at Sea Ranch. We sit in the chilly inversion layer with fog and wind from the Ocean maintaining cool temperatures with plenty of sunlight. We farm organically and maintain our licenses for fish friendly farming and integrated pest management. The health of our vineyard dictates these approaches to farming and making wine. We also run on bio-diesel at the vineyard and solar power at both the vineyard and winery.
