Tasting NOTES

Continuing to hold true to its Old World roots of brightness, minerality and racy freshness, our Estate Chardonnay tastes of pomelos, Fuji apples and lemon curd with a subtle hint of toasted oak. Enjoy with grilled shellfish, spring salads, or just kicking back under a shade tree on a hot summer afternoon.

Vineyard NOTES

The 32 acres of Sonoma Chardonnay on Rhinefarm are comprised primarily of vines with an average age of 30 years old, planted to Wente, See, and Robert Young clonal selections. Included in this blend are the second oldest Chardonnay vines in California â planted in 1970. All of the Chardonnay grows in the lower portion of the vineyard, a section that sits literally across the street from the Carneros appellation border and shares the cooling benefits of the fog from the San Pablo Bay to the south and the Petaluma Gap to the west. The topsoil is only 18"-30" deep, consisting of Huichica clay loam with occasional pockets of small stream gravel that have been deposited over centuries by the adjacent Arroyo Seco Creek. Beneath this layer is compacted Carneros Bay sediment that naturally restricts vigor. The climate and soils combine to maximize hangtime and intensity of fruit expression and restrict average yields to 3 tons/acre.
