Notes on the Expression Chardonnay 38 Gap's Crown Vineyard 750ML 2010

Tasting Notes The result of this process is a Chardonnay that exhibits great fruit and floral characteristics, while maintaining excellent balance, minerality and texture.

Technical Notes Gap’s Crown Vineyard, planted on Goulding-Toomes Complex soil, is situated where Sonoma Mountain and its surrounding southwest facing hills meet the Petaluma Gap. This unique cool climate, along with the soil, slope and aspect diversity of this vineyard site produces remarkable fruit and is consistently one of the most highly sought after fruit in the Sonoma Coast appellation. The grapes, Dijon Clone 124, were whole cluster pressed and fermented in French oak (10% new). During malolactic, the wine was stirred weekly on its lees to build texture and balance. After 11 months in barrel, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

Additional Notes Cool climate and relatively high rainfall are the general ecological features shared by all vineyards within the Sonoma Coast AVA. These factors contribute to slow grape maturation, with optimum ripeness coinciding with the very end of the growing season -- ideal conditions for Pinot Noir. The appellation stretches as far south as San Pablo Bay, right up to the Mendocino County line. Its broad boundaries overlap a number of other Sonoma AVAs and sub-AVAs. They also include some Sonoma shoreline vineyards, previously outside any other viticultural area. We will produce up to two vineyard designate wines (Gap’s Crown Vineyard and Redwood Vista Vineyard) from the Sonoma Coast and a Sonoma Coast blend.Gap’s Crown® is nestled on the western hillside of Sonoma Mountain leaving it exposed to the cool ocean breezes that funnel through the Petaluma wind gap throughout the growing season. This southern section of the Sonoma Coast AVA is emerging as a truly unique environment to grow Pinot Noir. The blocks at Gap’s Crown® are planted between 320’ and 820’ above sea level and are predominantly situated on Goulding-Toomes Complex soil.
