2018 Green Acres Old Wente Chardonnay

A powerful, yet balanced old-vine Chardonnay with aromas of Meyer lemon zest, herbs de Provence, lemon verbena.  On the palate, flavors of crisp, Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples and tangerine with hints of toffee and butterscotch.  A lively acidity, graceful body, and saline note carry through on the finish.

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.
