Sanctuary Chardonnay (2013)
Our Chardonnay sanctuary is the cool, crisp microclimate of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, where the great Charles Heintz and Dutton Ranch vineyards contributed the eld-selected grapes to make this classic small lot Chardonnay. The maritime in uence in the Russian River Valley creates a natural air conditioning that extends the growing season — often 15 to 20 percent longer than neighboring areas — allowing Chardonnay grapes to develop concentrated aromas and flavors while maintaining a balanced acidity.
Aroma: white peach, ripe pears, caramel apple, and crème brulée with mineral notes
Mouthfeel: soft, creamy palate with a bright acidity. This wine has a long and pleasant taste
Flavors: toasted vanilla, caramel and apple pie
