Full Bodied White
At Cline Family Cellars we seek complexity, elegance, power and sense of place in every wine we make.

This Chardonnay is from Cline’s Estate Sonoma Coast vineyard, the Lazy C, located in a region known as ‘The Petaluma Gap.’ Cool Pacific fog rolls in most days during the growing season, making this vineyard prized for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The cool air is ideal for slowly ripening Chardonnay and maintaining acidity. The grapes were hand-picked and destemmed. Wine is rested in French oak for 3 months. They see 25% new oak which imparts a delicate vanilla and toast character. The wine does not go through a malolactic fermentation.
This is a dry, crisp, and delicious wine, with notes of pineapple, citrus,and a smooth oaky vanilla finish. It is a balanced and food-friendly wine.
It pairs well with shellfish, chicken, roast pork or as an aperitif.
