2021 The Sage Chardonnay

Some things just add up: Dutton Ranch + lightest Goldridge soils + mature Old Wente Chardonnay (40+ years old) and you have a recipe for greatness. We try to stay out of the way and let the magic happen, treating it the old Burgundian way by fermenting it in barrel and leaving it alone to start fermentation spontaneously. We care deeply and strive for excellence, and the old ways produce the most complexity and the highest quality when done right. On display are aromas of lime blossom, passion fruit, lemon peel, a hint of asian spice and brioche. On the palate, a lush texture with defining acids providing lift
