2016 Chardonnay, Westside Crossing
"Excellent Chardonnay: supple, full bodied, and elegant and complex in flavor, it is a balanced, lightly oaked wine with a smooth, long finish, tasting of crème brulee, honey, white peach, candied lemon, and pineapple. Great value." - Ronn Wiegand, MS, MW / Restaurant Wine Guide
Our Chardonnay is a blend of two local vineyards in close proximity to our historic Wohler Bridge. The Foppoli Vineyard makes up 68% of the blend and is located on Slusser Road next to Sonoma Cutrer and La Crema. Completing the blend is Syre Vineyard at 32%, which is just east of us on Westside Road. Using native yeast, we fermented and aged the wine in onethird stainless steel and two-thirds oak barrels for nine months.
