2017 Sangiacomo Green Acres Chardonnay

2017 Sangiacomo Green Acres

Chardonnay

SONOMA COASTsonoma county


ALLOCATION LIST: $41.40
RETAIL: $46.00


Tasting Notes

The original “Hill” block of Green Acres may be gone for now, but after several years of trials and preparation we have carefully selected a handful of excellent neighboring parcels that offer a familiar, yet distinct snapshot of this tremendous Chardonnay site.

Still very much inspired by old-world chardonnay, this new offering shows not only the natural muscle of the excellent, mature Old Wente and Hyde clones but a precise acid balance as well. Flavors and aromas of ripe green apple, quince, pear, and stone fruit with a touch of pineapple lead the way and follow with a refreshing, precise citrus oil finish.

Raised in a combination of puncheon and barrel (25% new oak total) the 2017 Green Acres offering is one of our most chiseled Chards this vintage and those seeking both fruit and structure will find a lot to love here. Fans of the nine previous Hill block releases should be delighted with our new rendition. We look forward to a newly planted “Hill” block coming online in the future, but until then, we have an absolute A-Team alternative to celebrate and savor!
