The single-vineyard Knowlton Farms Chardonnay is organically grown on a beautiful farm in the sought-after Green Valley region, a Russian River sub-appellation in western Sonoma County. Here, fog drifts across Gold Ridge soil, a fine sandy loam that is the remains of an ancient inland sea.
A gregarious nose of warm apricots, honey-drizzled pears and spiced apples with wafts of ginger, brioche and cashews. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of spicy stone fruit flavors and a pleasant oilinedss to the texture, finishing long.
