The North Coast appellation encompasses some of the coolest vineyards in the state. Here, the characteristic foggy mornings, mild afternoons, and chilly evenings contribute to bright fruit and crisp acidity - traits that are distinctive and delicious in California Chardonnay. The La Follette 2014 North Coast Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from two organic vineyards in Mendocino County and one Old-Vine Chardonnay vineyard in the Sonoma Coast.

The Old-Vine Chardonnay ripens slowly, adding gravitas and volume to the overall blend. An inviting bouquet of vanilla bean, biscuit and lemon zest notes come together on the nose, while the creamy palate offers elegant yet energetic flavors that are balanced with fresh minerality and acidity. This is a fresh, harmonious blend that is distinctively coastal in style.
