Moon Mountain Chardonnay 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Moon Mountain Vineyard Chardonnay from Sonoma County shows intense aromas of apple pie and spice, while delicate nuances of vanilla from oak aging add complexity and richness. Mouthfilling flavors of pear and citrus are complemented by refreshing acidity. Lightly oaked, the wine shows the natural crisp fruit flavors of the varietal that have made Chardonnay the king of white wines. A beautifully balanced finish adds to the classic style of this Chardonnay.

Moon Mountain Vineyard is located high on the Sonoma Valley side of Mount Veeder, at nearly the 2,000-foot elevation.

These soils, combined with the rigors of growing on the mountainside, push the vines to work harder, resulting in small, intensely flavored fruit. To balance these rugged conditions, we organically farm each row to gently enhance the complexity of the vineyard by creating a rich, healthy growing environment and produce grapes with pure flavors and a pronounced sense of place.
