2014 Nancie Chardonnay exudes the depth and vibrancy that we have loved about this wine since we first began to produce it, six years ago. Nancie has evolved to include select vineyard blocks that demonstrate our favorite Sonoma County Chardonnay characteristics. The same vineyards have provided the core of the wine for several years now, and we have used this time to understand how each vineyard ripens and should be handled in the cellar. As winemakers, we are wedded to the notion that we are always students first and we will always continue to experiment with new sites each year, as we strive to produce increasingly excellent wines with each passing vintage.
Our hope for Nancie is that it highlight key characteristics that we love in Chardonnay: elegant with aromas of stone fruits, citrus zest and white flowers, accented with freshness and minerality that pairs with fullness and richness on the palate. The 2014 delivers exciting notes of fresh pear, mandarin orange, and ripe peach. On the palate, stone-fruit melds into wildflower honey and crème-brulée. Driven acidity harmonizes with fullness to keep clean, yet intense and thrilling.

Vineyard and TerroirThe Nancie Chardonnay comes from four vineyards: two reside on Sonoma Mountain and are influenced by cool ocean breezes, rocky soils, and high elevation. The third is a Russian River Valley property bearing 30+ year old vines. The fourth is a unique parcel nestled in a hillside in the cool Green Valley.
