2020 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

2020 Sonoma Mountain One Sky Chardonnay

One Sky’s secluded location is a haven for local wildlife, including rattlesnakes, deer, and the occasional mountain lion. Situated on a steep hillside with deep red, volcanic soils, the organically farmed One Sky Vineyard produces grapes that are concentrated and rich. This profile shines through in One Sky Chardonnay with its notes of Asian pear, yellow apple, lychee, and a hint of beeswax on the nose, complemented by vibrant acidity and toasted bread on the long, lingering finish

More Information
The 2020 vintage started with a mild winter and lighter than normal rainfall. During flowering, we saw some of that rain, resulting in a poorer “set” of berries. Lower yields concentrate flavors into fewer clusters and fewer berries, so what we lost in yield, we gained in quality. The year took a unique turn when our hospitality team was deployed to the vineyard, helping with shoot thinning and suckering in Springtime due to the pandemic-related Adobe closure. We were also able to make on-the-spot decisions regarding heat spikes later in the year; an absolute advantage of farming our own lands, we were able to take immediate, decisive actions with our vineyard team. With our constant collaboration between winemaking and farming teams, the resulting wines shine, exhibiting incredible concentration and complexity: a bright spot from an otherwise challenging year.
