2019 / Chardonnay

2019 Sangiacomo Chardonnay

The 2019 Sangiacomo Chardonnay comes from two different blocks of Wente clone from the Kiser Vineyard section of the Sangiacomo Vineyards. The fruit was handpicked on September 10th and 15th respectively and delivered to the winery at first light. Each lot was whole-cluster pressed and the juice settled for a day before being racked to French oak barrels (35% new). An indigenous fermentation with yeast on the grapes ferments the wine to dryness and lees stirring is performed every two weeks to help create a creamy mouthfeel. The Chardonnay is encouraged to go through full malolactic fermentation and is bottled unfiltered.

Tasting notes

Lemon color with aromas of ripe lemon, yellow delicious apple, white peach, pineapple, oak, vanilla, and subtle butterscotch. The palate shows ripe citrus, yellow apple, and stone fruit on entry with toasty oak, barrel spice, and sustained ripe fruit through the mid-palate balanced by fresh acidity and savory elements. The finish is moderately long with notes of shortbread, oak, and a fine dusty texture.


Food pairings

The 2019 Sangiacomo Chardonnay is a rich, complex wine that shows full ripe fruit balanced with savory flavors and attractive textures. It’s a great wine to pair with grilled swordfish with a lemon garlic sauce, or pasta alfredo garnished with lemon zest.
