2016 WALT Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay
Chardonnay - Sangiacamo Vineyard
"The 2016 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard has a nose of baked peaches, ripe pineapple and guava with hints of candied ginger, brioche and toasted almonds. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with tropical fruits and savory layers with a seducing creaminess to the texture and long, spicy finish."
This wine is vibrant gold in color with a slight green hue. It opens with aromatics of ripe Asian pear, toasted hazelnut, and mango. The palate is lush with beautiful structure from the barrel. Mango and crème fraiche on the palate lead into a long and focused finish with hints of crushed gravel.
The Sangiacomo Vineyard is a certified sustainable vineyard, first planted in 1969. The block we source from is entirely "Old Wente" field selection. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay makes this site ideal for growing Chardonnay. Older vines produce small clusters that drive concentration and richness in the wine.
