2022 Sonoma County Chardonnay

Crafted from carefully selected lots grown in the sub-AVAs of Sonoma County, which reaches from west of the Mayacamas to the Pacific Ocean. Fermented in French Oak barrels with partial malolactic fermentation, it offers a delightfully lifted mouthfeel with a weighty mid-palate, balanced by a refreshing bright and fruit-forward character.

A ‘textbook’ expression of the cooler-climate Sonoma County growing region.

    "Tropical fruits meet ripe apples in this well-balanced, fresh and forward wine that also sports tempting accents of vanilla, toast and butter. It’s light enough for a cocktail party and rich enough for almost any appetizer. Editors’ Choice."

Bottle of Sonoma County Chardonnay and white wine in a glass on a barrel

Our Vision

We choose small-lots of fruit from our grower partners in Sonoma County’s winegrowing regions west of the Mayacamas. Why? Marine influence from the Pacific cool the vines at night, preserving bright natural acidity and lifted citrus notes.

 

100% barrel fermenting in new French Oak adds toasty aromas and mid-palate roundness without overpowering the fruit flavors.

2022 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Crafted from two superb grower partners in St. Helena and Oak Knoll sub-AVAs. Each separate lot contributes distinct fruit flavors and aromatics. Aromatics begin with delicate honeydew, cantaloupe, and refreshing lime zest leading to a mouthwatering laser beam of Meyer lemon, guava, passionfruit, and lovely minerality. This wine finishes bright and balanced, with a crisp texture and nice mid-palate weight.

Tasting Notes with Founder Jonathan Pey

Bottle of 2022 TEXTBOOK Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2022

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

AVA: Napa Valley

  • Hand-picked clusters were field-sorted into half-ton bins on August 18 & 22.

  • After destemming, the lots were gravity-transferred into the press. A gentle whole cluster press cycle delivered a 160 gallons per ton.

  • A small portion was barrel fermented in neutral French oak for added complexity.

  • Frequent bâtonnage or “stirring of the lees” achieved beautiful texture.

Our Vision

Hand-picked grapes sourced from two growing appellations; Oak Knoll and St. Helena. Fermenting the majority in stainless steel brought the fruit flavors to the forefront, but a small portion was barrel fermented in neutral French oak to create a rounder mouthfeel. Frequent bâtonnage or “stirring of the lees” achieves beautiful texture.
