2014 Cold Creek Ranch Chardonnay

Our Cold Creek Chardonnay is grown in the slightly cooler microclimate of the Sonoma side of the Los Carneros district to the west, where thick fog and cool marine winds protect its tender skins. Indigenous to the Burgundy region of France, Clones 15 and 95 at a 50:50 ratio exhibit an approachable style and luminous, golden color.

Whiffs of fresh baked pie, buttered popcorn and lemon zest entice the nose. The palate develops a bright acidity which leads to undertones of caramelized oak, vanilla and lemon meringue pie. With a bright lasting finished of clean minerality and toasted nuts.
