The 2016 vintage proved to be an excellent one for Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Continued drought conditions led to tight cluster formation and smaller berries, resulting in wines with a concentration that rivaled 2015. The 2016 Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay benefited greatly from these conditions, in addition to the careful stewardship of the land by the Sangiacomo family.
Two blocks of Old Wente Clone Chardonnay from older vines were blended with a younger block of Dijon Clone 95. The resulting Chardonnay offers complex layers of texture and flavors. An even weather pattern allowed the grapes to maintain bright levels of acidity. The finished wine is fresh, lively and fruit forward, with citrus and apple aromas that leave your mouth watering.
