"The 2017 Chardonnay Sun Chase Vineyard is scented of tangerine peel, toasted almonds, crème fraîche and Fuji apples. Medium-bodied, it has a lovely creamy character, featuring layers of white flower, citrus peel and honeyed notes in the mouth, with great concentration and a wonderfully textured finish. 266 cases produced." (WA)

"Aged 10 months in French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Sun Chase Vineyard comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and it has a richer, more brioche, honeysuckle, and orchard fruit scented bouquet to go with medium body, bright yet integrated acidity, plenty of flesh, and a toasty, nutty style on the finish. It's another beautiful wine from this estate." (JD)

Winery Notes:
Pale straw color with tinge of green. Aromas of Tarte Tatin, caramelized Golden Delicious apple entice. Meyer lemon, ripe white nectarine, grilled pineapple, hazelnut, and subtle brioche come through early in the palate then combine with lemon curd, key lime, and a bit of yeastiness further in the flavor profile. The zesty finish has brilliant acidity providing an electric counterpoint to the riper aromas and flavors. Viscous in nature with a rich, round mouthfeel. Poached salmon would be a delight as would thin crust mushroom pizza, pasta with a white sauce, steamed asparagus, creamy cow or sheep cheese including a Brillat Savarin. Delightful today and will reward you with proper cellaring for 3-5 years (2022-2025).
