Generations of Sonoma

2015 Highway 12 Chardonnay

2015 Highway 12 Chardonnay


The inaugural release for our Highway 12 portfolio, this 2015 Chardonnay is a culmination of several years of vineyard and winemaking experimentation. Starting with delicious fruit from the Delta region, directly adjacent to Highway 12, the wine is bright and lively - a new staple from our cellar to your table.


The nose presents elderflower blossoms and light citrus with a hint of stone fruit. On the palate is something quite different; crisp asian pear prevails. The fruit and floral notes are balanced by light acidity and a rich toasty vanilla oak warmth to round out the finish.


Our vineyard partners for this wine are local Sonoma boys Ned Hill and Matt Stornetta of La Prenda Vineyards. They came to us with a new vineyard they were developing a few years back so we decided to jump in and give it a try. Hailing from from the cool Delta-Clarksburg region, also with a touch Sonoma Carneros, we opted for the minimalist approach - cool fermentation, light oak integration, lower alcohol.
