"Bright gold. Oak-spiced aromas of poached pear, melon and honey. Rich and fleshy on entry, then livelier in the mid-palate, offering powerful orchard fruit flavors that are brightened by a touch of lemon zest. Finishes with an echo of oak spice and gently sweet cling."
"We are thrilled to share with you our inaugural release of Sojourn Chardonnay. Our 2011 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of several unique lots from two distinct vineyards spanning this cool-climate appellation. Each lot was fermented in French oak barrels utilizing 30% new oak. Aromas of stone fruit, apples and white flowers lead to rich flavors and an intriguing mix of depth and vibrancy on the palate. Refreshing and layered, this wine is a fabulous blend of old-world style and new-world eloquence. Chardonnay clone 95 was chosen from the Sangiacomo vineyard along Robert's Road where we have been sourcing our flagship Pinot Noir since 2004. This vineyard is situated in the very cool northern Petaluma gap and provides layers of minerality and citrus notes along with great acidity and length. Clone 4 and Old Wente from the Keller Estate vineyard balance out the wine with ripe aromas of stone fruit and a lush richness. Malolactic fermenation was allowed to proceed naturally as the wine aged in barrel. This Chardonnay has the weight and acidity of an excellent food wine, while showing off expressive fruit aromas that also make it a terrific sipping wine." -Winery
