2021 Chardonnay, Vino Del Sol Vineyard
The Sonoma Coast AVA extends from San Pablo Bay to the border with Mendocino County. The appellation is known for its cool climate and high rainfall relative to other parts of Sonoma County. Close to the Pacific, with more than twice the annual rainfall of its inland neighbors, it’s warm enough to ripen wine grapes because most vineyards are above the fog line.
TASTING NOTES: Showcases vibrant notes of tropical fruit and green apple on the nose. The palate is medium, with fresh flavors of lychee, grapefruit, ripe cantaloupe, and vanilla bean. The finish lingers delightfully with notes of apple strudel and suggestions of baking spice.
