Cline Cellars Sonoma Coast Estate Grown Chardonnay 2013
The debut, estate-grown chardonnay is dry, crisp, and delicious with notes of pineapple, citrus, and a smooth, oaky vanilla finish. This is the perfect choice for salmon with garlic aioli, mahi mahi tacos, shellfish, orange chicken, roast pork, or a broccoli/truffle stir fry.
100% Chardonnay. In 1982, with an inheritance from his grandfather, Fred Cline founded Cline Cellars near Oakley, California. Here, he preserved and restored many ancient-vine sites. In 1991, Fred and his wife Nancy relocated the winery to the Carneros region of Sonoma County, onto a 350-acre estate with new vineyards and facilities. Originally the site of a Miwok Village and the first camp of the Sonoma Mission, it features lush green lawns and spring-fed ponds surrounded by rose bushes, willow trees, and gardens. Since 2000, Cline Cellars has farmed the Green String way: Cover crops, compost teas, crushed volcanic rock, oyster shell, and naturally-mined sulfur are all used to keep the vineyards healthy and the harvests chemical free.
