2020 / Chardonnay

2020 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 Flocchini Vineyard is situated on the eastern portion of the Petaluma Gap AVA, a region that experiences a windy, cool and long growing season. The Sangiacomo Family’s Kiser Vineyard in the Sonoma Carneros AVA is the other highly valued source for this vintage. 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

Pale yellow with aromas of yellow apple skins, fresh quince, ripe lemon, vanilla bean and toasted brioche. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with a creamy texture and fresh acidity. Showing notes of bosc pear, ripe lemon, nectarine on entry, with caramel, baking spices, and vanilla on the mid-palate. The lengthy finish is fresh featuring chamomile tea, lemon, stone fruit, and well-integrated oak.


Food pairings

The 2020 Damaris Reserve Chardonnay is mouth-filling and richly textured with attractive ripe fruit notes and complex barrel elements. This wine pairs nicely with seafood dishes such as baked king crab legs with lemon, garlic, and drawn butter or with mildly flavored creamy cheeses such as brie or camembert.
