Sonoma County’s Petaluma Gap continues to set the bar high for Chardonnay, producing wines with remarkable freshness and clean varietal character. This example from a single vineyard, fermented in small French oak barrels, is expressive and vibrant, featuring flavors of fresh-cut Fuji apple, flint and vanilla. To sip this Chardonnay is to experience the cool winds and ample sunshine in which the grapes were grown.
