SKU: VML16CHRRSU

A rare white wine in our Celestial Lineup, the Sun is a blend of Chardonnay vineyards throughout our most favorite region in the Russian River Valley, the Green Valley.  Climate here is defined by the fog, blowing East through the Petaluma Gap and eventually settling in the Valley.  This creates cool mornings, but burning off and giving way to sunshine in the afternoon.  A diurnal dance that keeps acid pretty and flavors delicious.

Tasting Notes
Vintage 2016 opens with notes of French vanilla, apple pie, and warm, familiar spices. The palate sings of honey, piecrust, and lemon blossom. Mid palate texture is smooth yet supple and sweet. The finish shows off her long legs, leaving notes of vanilla wafer and sticky honey.
