Introduction: The 2019 Kukeri Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is coming from Taylor’s Crown vineyard, located of the southern slopes of Taylor Mountain. At 1200 ft. elevation of south-western aspect and elevation above the fog line create a unique microclimate which is perfect for Burgundian varietals. The cool winds which blow in from Petaluma wind gap delay ripening and make for a long growing season. The wine is crafted 100% from the famed Robert Young clone of Chardonnay, which creates a rich and creamy wines, with intense aromatics and flavors.

Winemaking: The 2019 vintage provided fantastic grape growing conditions in Sonoma county, whcih allowed our chardonnay to remain on the vine for a long, leisurely growing season, and develop the full range of flavors and aromas.

The grapes were hand-harvested in the middle of October, and gently whole-cluster pressed into stainless steel tank for settling for few days. Racked and fermented into 100% French oak barrels with 40% new oak. Moderate fermentation temperatures (62°F) and a slow ferment (24 days) combine with partial ML helped develop intense aromas and mouthfeel. Aged on fine lees for 6 months. Only 2 barrels produced.

Tasting Notes: Lush and delicious, our 2019 Kukeri Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is very well balanced with great structure and texture, on the nose orange peel zest flavors leads into a brilliant menagerie of shaved almonds, toasted brioche and caramel, and lightly vanilla oak. In the glass, bright yellow straw with golden hues, medium weight on the palate with balanced silky mouthfeel and bright acidity. Long and lingering finish.

Enjoy with Family and Friends!

Cheers!
