2021 Metzker Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
The 2021 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from Black Knight Vineyard and Old Wente clone fruit from the esteemed Lone Oak Vineyard. The combination of cooler coastal fruit from the outskirts of the Petaluma Gap and Russian River fruit makes a seamless blend, providing both a vibrant, fleshy mouthfeel and uncompromising balance. Aged in mostly neutral oak, we’ve preserved the freshness of tangerine and green apple fruit flavors, to balance the subtle aromatics of allspice and earth. The mouthfeel is round and soft, with red apple, melon, and crushed rock minerality unfolding on the palate. The pleasing tension of the fruit and spice leads to a long, supple finish.
