Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
We have learned that the older, sustainably farmed blocks that comprised the original Fetzer Sundial Chardonnay are ideally suited to our modern Saracina version of that classic. We continue to source from those Fetzer family blocks of 30+ year-old-vines. The Viognier hails from an original family planting on the east bank of the Russian River.
Production Notes
In tribute to the venerable history of our chosen Chardonnay sites, the fruit was whole cluster pressed, settled, and fermented to dryness entirely in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to keep the wine fresh and bright. The wine remained on primary lees for approximately one month prior to blending to retain the pure expression of fruit for which we strive.
Winemaker Notes
Our 2016 Chardonnay offers highly fragrant aromas of baked pear, ripe peach, and a fresh, snappy note. Unadorned by oak or malolactic influence, the stone fruit flavors are delicate but pronounced. This is naked Chardonnay, with pure fruit character and bright acidity, echoing Old World unoaked counterparts from Burgundy’s famed Chablis region.
Food Pairing Notes
In the winter months, pair this fun, lively wine with a butternut squash risotto, or in summer, with grilled chicken skewers or grilled halibut with a spicy papaya salsa on the side.
