Saracina Unoaked Chardonnay 2013


SKU 28476


The Chardonnay hails from our CCOF-certified-organic, estate vineyard, located just a stone's throw from the Russian River, which runs the length of the property. These same vines provided grapes for the original Sundial Chardonnay, which was the first unoaked, no malolactic chardonnay ever produced in California. Pale straw in color, our 2013 Chardonnay offers snappy aromas of barely ripe Gravenstein apples, Bosc pears, and a nectarine note. The palate is all beautifully naked Chardonnay, with pure fruit character and bright acidity unadorned by oak or malolactic influences.

Wine EnthusiastThis tantalizing, unoaked Chardonnay offers relatively reserved fruit flavors and abundant, appetizing acidity. With its crisp apple aromas and tastes, it would pair well with a cheese plate or skewers of grilled shrimp.
