Sojourn Cellars 2017 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of unique lots from several distinct Sonoma Coast vineyard sites. A foundation of bright aromatics and citrus notes leads to minerality, length, and a layer of rich fruit character and body.
Each component in this blend was fermented separately in French oak barrels with 30% new oak. Lees were stirred regularly during the first three months of fermentation and aging. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to complete in barrel. After 10 months of aging, the components were blended together to create a winemaker’s cuvée that is expressive of the cool climate, nuance, and balance of the Sonoma Coast appellation.
