2017 UV-SL Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

We refer to this wine as the “chameleon,” as it evolves and morphs in each glass.  The combination of climate, soil, and rare clones planted at UV-SL produce kaleidoscopic, site-driven nuances.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

The 2017 UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay is an authoritative wine with incredible depth and complexity. Tightly wound at first, the nose opens to intense aromas of pain grillé, poached pear, key lime, chamomile, and orange blossom tea. Textured layers of lemon confit, apricot preserves, and crème anglaise coat the palate with an elusive background note of sea spray throughout. Vibrant acidity adds intensity to the long and pure finish. This robust wine has more to reveal and will cellar confidently for 10-15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
