Sonoma Coast Vineyards Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The resulting taste profile offers best of both old and new world to this wonderful varietal. There is distinct richness in the framework of a fresh silky acid matrix. The fruit content replicates zesty lemon and fresh pear with a center core of tropical fruit. The palate speaks as a wine that looks to the future. The aging potential for this wine should be exceptional given the bright acidity and the subtle integration of oak with the wines' complex fruit profile. This wine will evolve dramatically for the next 4 years and it will continue to evolve at a more subtle rate for 5 to 7 years. The Sonoma Coast Vineyards 2007 Chardonnay will make an alluring companion to great food for years to come.

Sonoma Coast Vineyards produces handcrafted wines exclusively from the Sonoma Coast appellation - wines of exceptional quality and character that will be recognized as the highest representation of excellence. Focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a small production of cold climate Syrah, Sonoma Coast Vineyards makes wines that embody the qualities and character that have shown the Sonoma Coast appellation to be one of the great growing regions of the world for these varietals. Growing grapes in the dramatically cool western reaches of Sonoma County is complex and demanding - but truly worth the risk. The resulting fruit produces wines that are elegant and intensely structured. Wine writer Robert Parker identifies the Sonoma Coast appellation as "where world class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are being made that are every bit as complex and complete as the greatest wines of France." (Savor Wine Country Magazine, Fall 2002) Under the direction of winemaker Anthony Austin, Sonoma Coast Vineyards wines display elegance, harmony, and balance. The 2002 vintage represented Anthony's 32nd harvest. Having studied under and assisted famed winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff, Anthony went on to become the founding winemaker at Firestone Vineyards. During his ten years at Firestone Vineyards, he helped to elevate the Santa Barbara region and Firestone Vineyards to new heights. Anthony's Austin Cellars wines won broad international acclaim and remain highly sought after collectibles. Anthony brings his vast knowledge and experience to Sonoma Coast Vineyards' mission of producing exceptional wines from the renowned Sonoma Coast appellation. By carefully selecting the vineyards and working closely with each grower, Anthony obtains ripe, balanced fruit from these climate-challenged vineyards. His love for his craft, and the character of the appellation, is reflected in every glass of wine he produces. Read less
