Vineyard Profile
The 2019 Flambeaux Sonoma Coast Chardonnay comes from two world-class vineyards owned by the Sangiacomo family, one of Sonoma County’s original--and leading--grape-growing families. Located near the Petaluma Gap, the Roberts Road Vineyard is characterized by cool temperatures and coastal fogs. The block is planted with the Dijon clone 95, a variety ideally suited for even the coolest climates and which adds a sparkling minerality and a green apple component to the blend. The Kiser Vineyard is situated farther inland in southwestern Sonoma and is planted with the Wente clone, a cultivar that contributes bright acidity balanced with the concentrated and weighty stone fruit flavors.
Production Notes
Fermented in small, open-top stainless steel tanks with gentle, twice-daily punchdowns over a period of two weeks
Winemaker Notes
Crafting a wine from these two very different properties is always fun. Combining the intense minerality from the cool climate Roberts Road vineyard along with the more richer grape from the Kiser Vineyard is a lesson in balance. Weight with pop. A beautiful combination. ~ Winemaker Ryan Prichard
Food Pairing
Trout meuniere or lobster bisque
