Sonoma Coast

Fallenleaf Vineyard Chardonnay 2018 The Jester - Ernest Vineyards
$38.00   750mL
Located on the top of the Eastern slope of the Sonoma ridge overlooking the town of Sonoma, Fallenleaf Vineyard is an 8-acre gem planted to Old Wente Chardonnay.  Owner Harry Cohn works tirelessly with Atlas Vineyard Management to methodically produce a stellar crop year after year.  Established before today's modern skinny tractors, the low yields of wide rows are compensated for with a unique double trunk / mid-wire cordon system that can only work in a well-ventilated, cool hillside site like this one.

Bright canary yellow in color with deeper golden tones. Complex aromas of dried apricots, ripe yellow apples, cantaloupe, and hay. Piercing acidity on the palate balances a full body with notes of Meyer lemon, sour apples and candied pineapples.
