Rodney Strong Sonoma County Chardonnay 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
We barrel fermented 60% of our California Chardonnay and aged that portion in French oak barrels, stirring the lees every month to lend a creaminess to the mouthfeel and a touch of spice and vanilla to the flavors. The remainder was cold-fermented in stainless steel to heighten the fresh tropical and citrusy fruit. This vintage displays aromas of lemon curd and apple with hints of toasty oak and baking spices. The finish is long and lingering with silky notes of fresh pear and pineapple. Enjoy this wine with grilled asparagus, seared tuna with a mango-avocado salsa or an apple and brie grilled cheese.
Snappy, with crisp Honeycrisp apple, lemon-lime and tangerine notes, plus hints of spices and savory toasted herbs on the finish. Drink now. 124,000 cases made.
Find over-ripe fruits of white peach, red and yellow apple and candied banana alongside a baby's breath floral note.
