Sojourn Chardonnay 2013
SANGIACOMO VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST
14.1% alc., pH 3.65, TA 0.62, 325 cases, $45. Release in spring 2015. A combination of Old Wente clone from Sangiacomo Vella ranch (planted in 1998). Whole cluster pressed, 100% malolactic fermentation, aged in French oak barrels, 30% new and bottle unfined. Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. A refined and classy wine with aromas of pear, melon and lychee. Crisp flavors of citrus, pear and nutty oak are complimentary. Very clean with good cut and a refreshing finish.
