Rodney Strong Chardonnay sonoma
Wine was barrel fermented 60% of this wine and aged that portion in barrel for 6 months, stirring the lees every month. This method offers the wine a touch of spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the remainder to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. Sonoma County Chardonnay displays aromas of baked apple, pear and citrus along with white blossom aromas. On the palate, the baked fruit and toasty brioche leads to a creamy, well-balanced finish.
