2014 Chardonnay, Sonoma Valley
Lively aromas and flavors of granny smith and fuji apples, with bursts of citrus and mandarin zest leading to a vibrant and balanced finish of green apple with candied lemon peel and hints of lemon oil. Smooth and creamy in texture with bright acidity and a flinty minerality, this is a well-balanced and character-rich Chardonnay.

Located in the cool, southern end of Sonoma Valley, Bartholomew Park Winery sits on the site where Hungarian nobleman Agoston Haraszthy planted the first vinifera grapevines in the United States. The three acres of the estate Sauvignon Blanc are split into two small blocks which are meticulously and organically hand-farmed. The blocks are harvested at three ripeness levels to capture the multitude of flavors layered within our estate grown fruit.
The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool morning hours and whole-cluster pressed. 80% of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature and 20% in lightly toasted new and neutral barrels to add texture and roundness. Each of these techniques aided in achieving freshness and forward fruit quality.
