Pedroncelli Signature Selection Chardonnay 2020, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California

The Chardonnay fruit is sourced from the Frank Johnson Vineyard located at the southern end of Dry Creek Valley. This vineyard benefits from the cool microclimate and alluvial soils near theRussian River and produces Chardonnay with exceptional fruit and balance, culminating in great character. The winemaking goal is simple: showcase the distinctive fruit of each variety. This focus on fruit is particularly important in creat ing the Signature Selection Chardonnay. After the grapes were picked the first week of September, the juice and berries were delivered to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to ferment, capturing the fresh frit flvors of the vintage. Tasting notes: Tropical frit, citrus and peach aromas lead to juicy fruit flavors of lemon, pineapple, honey anad sweet spices. A light bodied Chardonnay highlighted by balanced acidity, the wine finishes clean and refresing.
