Boars' View Chardonnay

Great wines begin in the vineyard...period. To make wines of true distinction, vineyard planning decisions are carefully made based on what the soil and microclimate tell you, not on your own thoughts and preconceptions. When we began examining the unique terroir of Boars’ View, we discovered a small section of Coastal Clay perched on the highest slope of the Boars’ View estate. While the Goldridge Loam covering the lower slopes was a perfect fit for Pinot Noir, we knew this small plot was calling for Chardonnay. Planted to 100% Wente clone, our Boars’ View Chardonnay is an incredibly rich wine, offering wonderful fruit aromatics that are a signature of the Sonoma Coast yet maintaining incredible structure that is distinctively Boars’ View.

We are thrilled to tell you that with each passing season our beloved Boars' View vineyard continues to reveal the brilliance of its 'true' Sonoma Coast pedigree. Complex and concentrated, winemaker Thomas Brown has crafted an elegant, prodigiously rich Chardonnay that the highest expression of our spectacular estate. — Fred Schrader
