About the Wine

The 2021 Sangiacomo Chardonnay is sourced from grapes grown at the Kiser Vineyard off Arnold Drive in the cool and windy Sonoma Carneros AVA just north of San Pablo Bay. This venerable appellation is highly regarded as one of the finest places in California to grow cool-climate chardonnay. Using grapes sourced from the highly desired and low-yielding Old Wente selection, with its characteristic uneven berry sizing, allows our winemaker to craft a wine that gives a true sense of place.

Pale straw color with moderate tearing on the glass.

The wine is dry and balanced on the palate with a rounded texture and moderate acidity. Sustained fruit notes of baked yellow apple and Meyer lemon are accented by the earthiness of chanterelle mushrooms, river rocks, and a subtle herbal component on the finish.
