Boars' View Estate 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 Vineyard. While the Goldridge Loam covering the lower slopes was a perfect fit for Pinot Noir, we knew this small plot was calling for Chardonnay and planted Wente clone. Our Boars’ View Estate Chardonnay is an incredibly rich wine, offering wonderful fruit aromatics that are a signature of the Sonoma Coast.

WINEMAKER NOTES In the glass, the 2019 Boars' View Chardonnay radiates a deep golden hue reminiscent of royal antiquities. There is a concert of aromas that emerge in rolling waves, suggesting polished brass, flowering jasmine, lemon curd, white pepper, and lilac blossoms. The palate features an array of decadent flavors. Notes of lanolin, crème brulée, honeysuckle, lychee, lime pith and white peach interact in harmony. The wine offers a very sleek, coating trajectory hallmarked by a wealth of rich Chardonnay flavor and complimentary new French oak. — Thomas Rivers Brown
