Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2019
Sonoma Coast

Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2019  - Ernest Vineyards
$38.00   750mL
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.  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.

A beautiful bright and pale yellow wine, clear with shades of vintage gold. On the nose, a hint of white flowers, pears and pink lady apples with clear mineral notes of river pebbles and cut granite. On the palate a refreshing expression of the grape: a fruit profile consistent with the aromas and a pleasant acidity. The juicy and youthful mid-palate does not take away from the refined natured of this vintage. The finish lingers on the palate with a clean and thirst-quenching profile.
