2018 Carneros Sangiacomo Chardonnay
The Sangiacomo family have been farming in Sonoma for over 100 years, and we’ve been making wines with them for 35yrs. Well known for their attention to detail, the result is a complex and vibrant Chardonnay reflective of the Carneros region.
Clones: Robert Young, Beresini, Cabral, Catarina, Old Wente, Dijon 76, 95, 809, 548
Terroir: The Sangiacomo vineyards are found in western Carneros, known for their loam and clay soils and a mixture of flat land and rolling hillsides, which has the reliable marine fog that rolls in every evening and burns off mid-morning.
Zesty notes of lime, kumquats and green pineapple, with powdered lily aromas. On the palate this wine is energetic from the start with tangy citrus, white peach and cloves.
Suggested Pairings: Braised chicken thighs with Meyer lemons and olives, whole grilled fish, and Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam or Cabot Clothbound Cheddar cheeses.
