  1. Gro Chardonnay "Ruhl Vineyard" Mt. Veeder 2017

    Gro Chardonnay "Ruhl Vineyard" Mt. Veeder 2017

    This is good, big, rich California Chardonnay. From Ruhl Vineyard on Mt. Veeder whose aspect faces in three different directions to capture the cooling effect of San Pablo Bay but also the sunshine of Napa Valley. Aged in 15% new French oak for one year with lees ageing – but no MLF to keep the wine’s freshness. Tropical aromas of banana, mango, and melon, as well as perfume and white flowers, with cream and biscuit from the lees, and a lingering, grainy, spicy finish. Learn More
  2. Lioco Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2017

    Lioco Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2017

    As the story goes, the Lioco brand was conceived in a back alley behind Spago in Beverly Hills by Kevin O’Connor and Matt Licklider. There is no new oak used in this Chardonnay, so the finish is crisp and refreshing, but this is not tart or super high in acid. If you are looking for an un-oaked Chardonnay, this is the wine for you. The flavor profile is mostly lemon/lime with with some chamomile and herb characteristics that are complimented by firm acidity. Learn More

    Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra White Rorick 2016

    This is an unusual Sierra Foothills blend of Piquepoul, Verdelho, Chardonnay, and Albariño. They come together for a fresh, nervy, delicate style that’s filled out with some creamy richness, citrus aromas of lime and lemon zest, and a lightly spicy mouthfeel of white pepper and ginger. So much acidity coming from the Piquepoul and Albariño, giving the palate a real zing. Perfect accompaniment to fish or seafood. Learn More

    Rivers-Marie Chardonnay "Bearwallow" Anderson Valley 2017

    From Bearwallow vineyard in Anderson Valley, Mendocino, where the cool nights and maritime influence and shallow, infertile soils combine to produce a tense, linear style of Chardonnay. The warm days fill out the body of the wine, with some roundness, as well as aromas of white peach, guava, hazelnut, and chamomile. A Chardonnay that has the perfect balance between fresh acidity, ripe fruit, oak, and a long finish. Learn More

This is a perfect un-oaked Chardonnay that has been naturally fermented and aged on its lees for 8-10 months. At this price, you can buy it by the case. Learn More
