2019 Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay

2019 Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay

Our Gap’s Crown Vineyard has become one of the most iconic vineyards of the Sonoma Coast region, consistently producing pinot noirs and chardonnays of exceptional beauty and distinction. Uniquely positioned on the southwestern-facing slope of Sonoma Mountain, in the Petaluma Gap, these vines are cloaked in fog for most of the day and endure intense winds that hammer the fruit, prolonging the growing season for steady ripening and building intensity and layers. The clones are specifically chosen for this cold site.

This wine is characterized by its signature minerality and vibrant acidity, accented by flavors of kiwi, citrus zest, green apple and depth across the palate. Every moment with this heavenly chardonnay is to be savored.

More Information
The 2019 vintage made a memorable entrance, with much-needed rainfall, allowing the earth to recover and heal from previous dry years. The vines awoke from their winter slumber and transitioned into a cool spring, giving us the chance to enjoy a mild and uneventful budding season. As fruit matured, the temperate conditions allowed the flowering to set at an even pace as we continued to experience cool temperatures throughout the season. The grapes had a nice, slow development into veraison, intensifying flavors and giving us plenty of nuance to work with in the cellar. Our winemaking team perfectly captured the distinct characteristics of the 2019 vintage, allowing each of our estate vineyards to express each of their unique traits in the bottle. Because of the complexity and high yields of this vintage, we are excited for the tremendous quality and age-ability that it promises. While the 2018 and 2019 vintages had similar bounties and quality, the growing seasons couldn’t have been more different—the true blessing and mystique of Mother Nature.
