Quilt Chardonnay 2021
For this Chardonnay, they rely almost entirely on vineyards from the Carneros District, where the climate is distinctly cooler and foggier than 'up valley.' Carneros is a world unto itself. Much of its soil is dense clay due to the region's proximity to San Pablo Bay. This soil, combined with the marine influence of cool winds, brings about Chardonnay fruit with impressive structure and a flinty minerality.
COLOR... Pale yellow with golden highlights.
AROMATICS... Crisp yellow pear, fuji apple, Meyer lemon, honey, and a hint of caramel.
PALATE... Meyer lemon zest, nectarine, ripe pear, yellow apple, and kiwi with intertwined notes of cantaloupe and pineapple.
STRUCTURE... Bright, medium-bodied, and rich with smooth and generous layers. Complex, mouthwatering acidity with a lively finish.
