2017 Chardonnay Family Reserve Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
The Family Reserve Chardonnay is a blend of specially selected clones and barrels and is intended to be more complex and age-worthy than our Estate. It slowly reveals itself as it opens in the glass. Showing undertones of slate and flint, nutmeg, and light vanilla, highlighted by notes of tangerine blossom and rose petal. It moves across the palate in a way that is flavorful and textured while being somehow ethereal at the same time. This wine is somewhat restrained in its youth but will continue to evolve for many years in bottle. Truly a world class effort coming from an outstanding vintage!
