Renteria’s 2012 Los Carneros Chardonnay comes from the famed Sangiacomo Green Acres Vineyard in the Carneros appellation. This was the first Sangiacomo vineyard planted in 1969 with Chardonnay, and today just five acres remain. It’s limited yields and premium fruit make it one of the area’s most sought after vineyards for Chardonnay today.
Renteria’s Los Carneros Chardonnay represents the Carneros region perfectly, with nice fresh acidity, light minerality, and stone fruit characters. Aromas of baked apple and toasted lemon scone complement the rich, full-bodied palate with flavors of baked pineapple, praline, vanilla and spice. This Chardonnay displays an excellent range of flavors and great complexity.
