2018 / Chardonnay

2018 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay

The Damaris Chardonnay was crafted from two of our favorite cool-climate vineyard sources, The Flocchini Vineyard and the Sangiacomo Family’s Kiser Vineyard. The Sangiacomo Family’s Kiser Vineyard in the Sonoma Carneros AVA is the other highly valued source for this vintage. The Flocchini Vineyard is situated on the eastern portion of the Petaluma Gap AVA, a region that experiences a windy, cool and long growing season. These two cooler sites allow the Chardonnay fruit to maintain balance and acidity while developing fully mature flavor profiles. The grapes used for this wine are the Robert Young and Old Wente selections, both known for their ability to produce fruit of outstanding character.

Tasting notes

Lemon color, complex with aromas of ripe lemon, baked yellow apple, crisp pear, vanilla custard, butterscotch with herbal notes. The palate is near full bodied with ripe lemon, yellow apple, pear and oak on entry with herbs, creamy lemon yogurt and a mineral/wet stone texture joining on the mid palate. Brioche, vanilla and lemon bar elements join sustained fruit on a fresh, balanced and moderately long finish.


Food pairings

The 2018 Damaris Chardonnay shows the best character of Sonoma Chardonnay of intensity, complexity, but with great balance of textures and flavors that keeps things fresh and interesting. Try it with Grilled Swordfish with a Lemon Basil Butter sauce.
