This vintage is one of the richest in recent memory from the coastal vineyard. Impressive depth and power from 35-year-old vines, with a big mid-palate and a great finish. Orchard fruits meld with honey and brioche alongside salty minerality and well-integrated acidity to craft a quintessential Sonoma Coast Chardonnay.

From a cooler, foggy site just east of Occidental, on the edge of the Green Valley portion of the Russian River, the 2016 Chardonnay Charles Heintz comes from 35-year-old vines, was barrel fermented and aged, and bottled unfined. This deeper, richer, more powerful Chardonnay boasts sensational notes of honeyed orchard fruits, brioche, and salty minerality. With integrated acidity, a big, rich mid-palate and a great finish, it’s a quintessential Sonoma Coast Chardonnay to drink over the coming decade or more.
