A truly expressive Chardonnay from the low rolling hills of the Sonoma Coast. Heavy fog and strong winds carve this decadent and textured Chardonnay along a ridged edge of flinty minerality. “The 2018 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay opens with vibrant aromas of ripe lemon, fresh cream, slate, and subtle, spicy oak. The palate is broad and flavorful, with a rich and layered finish that is balanced by racy minerality.” - WALT notes. This would be a great addition to Holiday dinners, pairs great with stuffing, potatoes, and turkey.
