2015 Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay

The Soberanes Vineyard is in the heart of the Santa Lucia Highlands’ bench and is directly adjacent to Garys’ vineyard. This vineyard is managed with the utmost in care and attention to detail.

TASTING NOTES:

"Medium yellow color.  Aromas of brioche, lemon, grapefruit, passionfruit, and mango meander out of the glass.  With some time, notes of butterscotch, ripe fig, apple pie, and nutmeg fill out the aroma profile.  The purity of aromas stay true in the mouth and are framed by zesty acidity, with texture of polish and great purity.  This Chardonnay finishes with amazing complexity in an intricate, lingering, and refreshing finale.  Enjoy now through 2024."

~Bill Brosseau, Director of Winemaking

92 Points / 2015 Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay

Very broad but also complete and elegant aromas show on this bottling, including Asian pear, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, wet stone and a touch of browned butter. The mouthfeel is very tense though not overly sharp in acidity, with lemon and key lime citrus. That tension holds deep into the sip. ~Matt Kettmann Read more
