2019 / Chardonnay

2019 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 straw color with aromas of lemon and ripe apple, with subtle honey notes. The palate is rich with mixed citrus and oak on entry, with vanilla and a hint of beeswax on the midpalate. The finish is moderately long, clean, and textured with lemon and mandarin orange.


Food pairings

The 2019 Rodgers Creek Chardonnay would pair well with veal scaloppine with a mushroom and subtle herb cream sauce.
