Blend and Origin
Smoke Tree Chardonnay 2015
A blend of chardonnay grapes from cool Sonoma County's AVAs of Knights Valley, Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley. In order to balance richness and freshness, the wine is partly barrel- and tank-fermentated. Tanks and barrels receive weekly battonage to build complexity and roundness. The wine then matured 7 months in oak barrel (22% new).
More to try
Keep it simple
This wine is perfect on its own as an apéritif.
The more delicate flavors in a grilled chicken salad or citrus-infused, herb-crusted salmon are ideal matches for this cool-climate, unoaked chardonnay and its hints of minerality.
