The Thomas Fogarty 2012 Langley Hill Vineyard Chardonnay was produced from a steep hillside property on the Fogarty estate in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains wine-growing region. This cool-climate site characteristically yields Chardonnay that is steely and structured with persistent citrus and mineral flavors, and the 2012 vintage was a particularly impressive year.
Bright, focused, and beautifully articulated, the 2012 Langley Hill Vineyard Chardonnay is a racy, lemon-lime inflected expression of this rocky site. Flavors of generous citrus and stone fruit are impeccably balanced by bright acidity and texture before leading into a soft finish that’s all about finesse.
