2017 Sangiacomo Chardonnay, Old Wente

Layers of green apple, lime zest, and lemongrass combine with hints of stony minerality on the nose. On the palate, the white peach, green pear, and crushed river rock notes are supported by lively acidity. Ready to drink, but with proper storage could age for two to five years.

In the late 1920s, the Sangiacomo Family purchased their first parcel in Sonoma—planted to fruit trees and then to grapes for winemaking. In 1969, the Sangiacomo’s Green Acres Vineyard was partially planted to the original Old Wente clone of Chardonnay. In 1981, Saintsbury partnered with the Sangiacomo family and have since received the fruit from this Old Wente block.

The mixture of vine age and small grape clusters, natural to the Old Wente clone, produce an extremely unique wine now considered our flagship Chardonnay.


Appellation: Carneros, Sonoma

Clones: Old Wente clone

Terroir: Haire clay loam soil; bordering the Sonoma Creek on the eastside and Fowler Creek running through the vineyard.
