Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Chardonnay from Sojourn is impressive. It opens with a very inviting Meyer lemon and green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a tasty butter and yellow apple blend with very nicely integrated vanilla oak. There is also a hint of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard would pair well with a chicken and wild mushroom ravioli in a light cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We sourced our 2016 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay from three of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma County – Sangiacomo, Durell, and Gap’s Crown – with the goal of creating a cuvee that showcases the varietal’s exceptional character in this region. The vineyards were more balanced in 2016, bestowing the wines of this vintage with high levels of concentration and detailed aromatics. An intriguing nose of stone fruit and yellow apple leads to rich flavors and an intriguing mix of depth and vibrancy. Refreshing and layered, the addition of 30% new French oak adds richness and broadens the texture without overwhelming the fruit.
