Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
We have learned that the older vine 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. All of the sites are in the vanguard of true sustainability, having been certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance.
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 just less than two months prior to blending to retain the pure expression of fruit for which we strive.
Winemaker Notes
Our 2017 Unoaked Chardonnay offers aromas of Bartlett pear, nectarine and a crisp, snappy note. The palate shows stone fruit and ripe citrus flavors that are light and lively, unhampered by overbearing oak or malolactic influence. This is a pure expression of Chardonnay, a ray of sunshine that carries itself admirably without weight.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this versatile wine with simple steamed fish with pesto or with grilled chicken paillards with olive oil and fresh herbs.
