2022 Lucie Sun Chase Vineyard Chardonnay

$60.00 $720.00

Sun Chase Vineyard is among the most highly sought-after vineyards in the Petaluma Gap AVA. Owned and farmed by the Guarachi Family, its location 1400 feet above the valley floor places it just above the persistent fog line and allows perpetual sunshine during the day while cool winds from the bay in the evenings permit the grapes to maintain optimal acidity.

We have barrel-fermented this chardonnay for 14 months in a mix of new and once used French oak. Natural malolactic fermentation is completed in about half of the barrels, high intensity malic acid is maintained in the other barrels. The resulting wine exhibits a light creaminess, exotic citrus and tropical fruit notes and a mildly acidic finish.
