About This Wine

  • WINEMAKER

    Chardonnay is the queen of the whites and this lady suits that description to a tee. Across the incredibly diverse Kunde Estate, combined with a collection of clonal selections, complexity and focus come together in an easy sipping white wine. For those who like their Chardonnay to be crisp, a beautiful dose of acid and the richness of barrel fermentation creates a very lightly oaked, tasty experience.
  • PRODUCTION

    Whole-cluster pressing and cold-settling of the juice was followed by barrel fermentation (90% of the blend) and cool-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks for the remainder. The barrel-fermented wines were aged on the yeast lies with stirring once a week, followed by malolactic fermentation. The tank fermented wines did not go through malolactic fermentation. 80% of the wine was aged for nine months in French oak barrels (27% new oak), with 20% aged in stainless steel, and then bottled.

    92 POINTS! Wine & Spirits Magazine, 2014 vintage

    "The chardonnay plots at the Kunde estate start at the valley floor and ascend Sonoma Valley's eastern hills to an elevation of 1,450 feet. This comes from young vines and is made in an opulent barrel-fermented style. Yet for all its roundness, there's plenty of structure underneath. Aromas of chamomile and damp earth freshen its hazelnut toastiness, and there's enough acidity to hold its powerful flavors in taut, vinous clarity."

    93 POINTS! Wine & Spirits Magazine, 2013 vintage

    "Most of Kunde's estate chardonnay grows on the warm valley floor, with other blocks perched on a cooler north-facing slope that tops out at 1,450 feet of elevation. In 2013, a dry and warm year, those vineyards delivered a chardonnay with exuberant ripeness and without an abundance of alcohol. Its powerful scents of beeswax and sage lead into a texture that's refined and symphonic. Its layers of complex earthiness bring white truffles to mind, a firm structure and bright acidity holding all that richness in balance: definitive Sonoma chardonnay at a great price."
