2018 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

2018 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

Hailing from the top of Sonoma Mountain, this chardonnay showcases what a high-elevation vineyard can produce. Our unique positioning and nourishing volcanic soils allow the grapes to ripen and develop at a consistent pace. This property is a favorite amongst local fauna – we are in harmony with the wildlife (including mountain lions!) who roam amongst the vines. With this vintage you’ll find nutmeg spice paired with ripe Meyer lemon and guava. Dubbed the Goldilocks of our chardonnays, the One Sky never disappoints. Its Double Gold, Best in Class, 98 pts from Sunset International Wine Competition shows that the experts agree.

More Information
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above-average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
