2019 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

2019 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

Perched above the fog on Sonoma Mountain, we patiently await the moment when our One Sky Vineyard is ready for harvest each autumn. One of our latest ripening chardonnay vineyards, the unusually high elevation allows the fruit time to develop deep flavors and steadily ripen to perfection. One Sky’s secluded location is a haven for local wildlife, including rattle snakes, deer and the occasional mountain lion. 2019 was a cooler growing season, creating a wine bursting forth with lively acidity and luxurious mouthfeel. Aromas of ripe Meyer lemon and hints of honeysuckle greet the palate, while its crisp golden color emanates from the glass- ultimately leading to a long, lingering finish. The 2019 vintage shows nicely on the One Sky and reveals the qualities that make this chardonnay such a crowd-pleaser.

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.
