Red Car Sonoma Coast 2018 Chardonnay
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay offers a unique opportunity to color outside the lines. We do this via blending select clones and blocks from each of our three Chardonnay vineyards, in pursuance of harmony and balance in the glass. With two of our plantings in the remote and dramatic Fort Ross Sea-View
appellation, and one just outside the tiny village of Freestone, we are afforded the opportunity to farm and produce Chardonnay from some of the most unique coastal locations in California. 2018 proved to be a stellar growing year, we experienced a long, slow and cool growing season, where Chardonnay was
able to ripen to full maturity while maintaining beautiful natural chemistry. Each lot is fermented in French Oak barrels, and aged on lees until bottling. The result is a wine that reflects its unique terroir with racy acidity, rich texture and a strong mineral presence.
