"The 2017 Evoluna Sonoma Coast Chardonnay comes from the Martaella, Susanna and Searby vineyards. Fruit was harvested between September 2-11 and the wine was barrel fermented and aged 18 months. It springs from the glass with vibrant tropical fruits—pineapple and guava—plus spiced pears and peach cobbler with wafts of cedar and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, the palate offers elegantly knit fruit and freshness with a satiny texture and great length. 500 cases produced." (WA)

"Coming from the Sonoma Coast, the 2017 Chardonnay Evoluna was fermented and aged 18 months in 30% new oak. It represents a terrific value and has classy notes of white flowers, toasted spice, and lemon oil, with just a kiss of background oak. Drink this medium-bodied, balanced Chardonnay any time over the coming 2-3 years." (JD)

Winery Notes:
The Evoluna Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is rich and lush, yet bright and approachable. Fuji Apple, D'Anjou Pear, Narcissus and Lychee greet you on the nose. On the palate, you find notes of vanilla bean, mango, dried apple and apricot preserves. This delectable wine has a plush, rich mouthfeel - bold on the front, balanced mid-palate, and a long, lingering finish.
