Notes from the Winemaker:

Our WALT “La Brisa” Sonoma County Chardonnay is a blend of Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast vineyards, whose cool microclimates and restrictive soils grow complex, compelling fruit. This bottling captures this appellation’s vibrancy, ripe tropical and citrus fruits, and incredible persistence.

The WALT “La Brisa” Sonoma County Chardonnay boasts a deep straw color. Bright, playful aromatics feature tropical fruit and melon, followed by hints of sweet hazelnut and toasted marshmallow. The creamy palate is deep, lush, and overflowing with apricot, pear and citrus flavors, with a penetrating, complex finish that sails on and on. Expect the wine to gain complexity over the next 2-5 years.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2011 Vintage):
"Ripe and honeyed in vanilla, buttered toast, tropical fruit and orange jam flavors, this Chardonnay is lifted by vibrant acidity and a tangy minerality, like a lick of steel that lends it backbone. It defines the modern style with elegance." -S.H. (8/1/2013)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2011 Vintage):
"Presents a broad range of ripe tropical fruit and pineapple flavors, complemented by notes of guava and mango, with a dash of nectarine. Juicy finish. Drink now through 2017. 182 cases made." –JL (Jun 30, 2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2010 Vintage):

"Hazy medium gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of apricot nectar, pineapple, mango, honey and coconut; a bit Sauternes-like! Fine-grained, thick and exotic, but with plenty of underlying acidity giving shape to the wine's thick texture. Finishes with strong flavors of fresh and dried apricot. Totally unrestrained chardonnay for fans of the style." - Stephen Tanzer (May '12)
