This mountain vineyard planted at 1300 feet, receives the optimal sun exposure and microclimate to produce world class chardonnay. The 2017 Fisher 'Mountain Estate' Chardonnay Sonoma County is a shining example of the Fisher Mountain Estate Vineyard. Honeydew melon, stone fruit and green apple dominate the nose and palate. Driven by stone minerality, this chard is bright and taut with energy. A zippy finish...stellar stuff!

The Fisher family has the sort of vineyards that will cause a winemaker’s pulse to quicken – a vitally important advantage in a game where the conversation starts (and ends) with raw materials. From their gorgeous estate property on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas range, to their Lamb vineyard in Calistoga, they have some magical land at their disposal. Winemaker Whitney Fisher and her team are farming these plots to exacting standards, and the results are some of the best wines in the Valley! You owe it to yourself to mix up a case of these fabulous wines.

Vinous

The 2017 Chardonnay Mountain Estate Vineyard is a gorgeous wine that captures all the phenolic intensity that is so typical of this site. Ripe pear, graphite, sage, dried herbs, dried flowers and chamomile all develop in the glass, but it is the wine's weight and viscosity that really stand out.
