Very Limited Production of 3 barrels.
2013 Delgado Family Chardonnay
100% Champlin Creek Vineyard, Sonoma Coast Appellation. Gently rolling hills with South and Southeast exposure comprise the vineyard site. This area is cool, foggy, and windy – ideal for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
A very good growing season. Normal rains in the winter but very little in the spring. Slight localized frost damage. Spring got off to a fast start then a cool dry summer led to a very good harvest.
This wine opens up with bright creamy fruit and tropical aromas. The wine is lush on the palate showing juicy pear and apple and a lively and round texture. The finish is long and vibrant complimented by notes of stone fruit.
