2020 McCrea Vineyard Chardonnay Sonoma Mountain
Green-tinged pale yellow. Pitched aromas of stone fruit flesh, morning citrus flowers, fresh ground herbs and its ever-present underlying chalky influence. Concentrated and intensely flavored with layered weight, yet spined by brisk natural acidity that extends throughout the extended finish. A compelling example of the leaner, silica driven soil series at our McCrea vineyard.Join To Purchase

The 2020 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard is powerful and full of personality. It offers aromas of white peach, elderflower, lime peel, meringue and dried mint. Creamy and harmonious, with tangy yet integrated acidity, the medium-bodied palate unfurls layer after layer of candied citrus and flinty sparks, and it finishes with incredible length and spiciness.
Lovely aromas of peach, grapefruit, brioche and dried herbs. Medium-bodied and elegant with great balance. Straw character comes through towards the finish. Delicious, with mildly oily texture.
