The grapes used to produce the Nancie Chardonnay come from a variety of vineyard sources, resulting in a multi-layered wine. The 2015 captures our desire to make an exceptional Sonoma County Chardonnay that is rich and delicious, while also preserving minerality and freshness. To create a complex Chardonnay, we sought out different AVAs to produce a wine that could never exist from a single site. The result is a Chardonnay with great fruit concentration and minerality from an old vineyard in the Russian River, stone fruit and elegance from a vineyard in the Sonoma Coast, crème-brulée and chalkiness from the Bennett Valley and a touch of exotic fruit from our dry-farmed, estate Chardonnay vineyard.
It’s difficult to hide our pride in this vintage of Chardonnay and we know this will be a wine our customers can’t miss!Visit Our Store
