Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
THE VINEYARD: Located on the top of the Eastern slope of the Sonoma ridge overlooking the town of Sonoma, Fallenleaf Vineyard is an 8-acre gem planted to Old Wente Chardonnay. Owner Harry Cohn works tirelessly with Atlas Vineyard Management to methodically produce a stellar crop year after year. Established before today's modern skinny tractors, the low yields of wide rows are compensated for with a unique double trunk / mid-wire cordon system that can only work in a well-ventilated, cool hillside site like this one.
LABEL STORY: Historically, The Jester elevated spirits and offered comedic relief through wit and humor. Erin’s dad shared a personality quite similar, always ready to engage his heart and mind with a gift for making people feel better and more understood. His memory inspires us every day.
TASTING NOTE: Brilliant pale-yellow to white gold in color with mineral aromas leading to discreet floral notes, unripe peaches, nectarines, and a touch of sweet almonds. A lingering mélange of bright fruit, minerality and intense acidity provide a refreshing but weighty palate.
