2018 / Chardonnay

2018 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay

The Rodgers Creek Vineyard has provided Landmark with high quality fruit for well over a decade. This ridge-top vineyard exposes the vines to the full force of the afternoon wind coming off the Pacific Ocean through the “gap” and the low fertility soils limit both the size of the canopy and clusters which consistently produces small, frequently seedless intensely flavored berries. The relentless pressure of the mid-day winds in union with the mature vine produce very well-balanced wines, with elegance and sense of place, expressing the “Petaluma Gap” viticultural area.

Tasting notes

Moderate intensity lemon color, with ripe lemon, Yellow Delicious apple, Meyer lemon, and some mandarin orange with spicy oak and subtle honey notes. On entry the wine is rounded, full, and creamy, with ripe fruit that lasts through the mid-palate with notes of a little beeswax. The finish is moderately long with fresh acidity, toasted oak, and subtle floral accents.


Food pairings

The 2018 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay pairs well with trout almondine or a baked lemon chicken breast.
