2014 Sawbuck Chardonnay
Aromas of pineapple, citrus and cream with a touch of coconut transform this full, rich 2014 Sawbuck Chardonnay into a tropical escape for the senses. Spicy oak on the palate with a hint of vanilla from French, American and Hungarian barrels leads to a full mouthfeel that supports this wine’s fleshy nature. Finishes lively with graham cracker crumble and clove on the tongue.
Chardonnay clones 17 (Robert Young Clone), 4 (Wente Clone) and 124 (Dijon Clone), grown in our estate vineyards, are the primary sources for this wine. We fermented 50% of the Chardonnay in barrels and the other half in stainless steel tanks and later finished aging in barrels. After barrel fermentation, the wine was periodically lees stirred. It was barrel-aged for 10 months to give the wine its rich texture. The tank-fermented portion adds crisp fruit characters and bright acidity.
92% Dunnigan Hills Chardonnay, 8% Russian River Valley Chardonnay
