Produced from the renowned Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast, the Blagden 2017 Chardonnay is balanced, complex, and a beautiful representation of this site’s special terroir. Golden in color, this Chardonnay opens with aromas of lemon curd, tangerine peel, kiwi, meringue, and saline with hints of citrus blossom against a slight vanilla backdrop. As it opens, you can also smell night jasmine, apple, honeydew melon and sweet nectarine. On the palate, the velvety entry coats the mouth with golden delicious apple, almond and beeswax, with other notes of citrus peel and pineapple, all centered around a firm yet elegant citrus fruit core. The long finish brings minerality, stone fruits and a subtle oak undertone with racy acidity. Enjoy!
