off the vine

Exquisite fruit from the Charles Heintz Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast creates one of the finest Chardonnays we have tasted from the ‘07 vintage. Rich and pure with a texture and silky weight that shows what great winemaking (Robbie Meyer) is all about. On the palate and on the attack one finds layers of tropical fruit, including pineapple followed by spiced pear, apricot and orange blossom notes. A fine acidity gives balance and the finish goes on and on. A wonderful effort! Wild yeast and 100% malolactic fermentation in-barrel is just a part of the story. Aged for 15 months in 55% new French oak, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Just 275 cases were produced. Highly recommended!
