Radio-Coteau introduced a little concrete egg fermentation into the mix this vintage, alongside the traditional neutral and once-used French oak, to let the Sonoma Coast character really shine. A blend of fruit from Heintz Ranch and the Radio Coteau Estate deliver a rounded, succulent Chardonnay with exciting tension and youthful freshness. Crisp apple, ripe pear, and yellow citrus find highlights of lemongrass and honeysuckle, all grounded in minerality and mouthwatering acidity. This is a complex, impressive ‘Wingtine’ white that’s sure to elevate any fine meal.
The 2019 Chardonnay Wingtine is impressive. Large-scaled and ample, the Wingtine is also wonderfully nuanced. There is a sense of transparency to the 2019 that is utterly beguiling. Lemon oil, mint, white pepper, sage and chamomile are some of the many aromas and flavors that develop in the glass. Strong savory and mineral accents add notable complexity.
