On Sale

GREGGARIOUS Chardonnay, Carneros, Sonoma

Regular price $29.00
WHY WE LOVE IT:
  • Native fermentation, barrel aged in cave
  • Not over creamy, yet floral cotton candy expressions, crisp and soft drinking
  • Certified Sustainably and Ecocentric farmed ranch, tiny 4 acre farm on the Sonoma side of Carneros

WINEMAKER: Jacqueline Yoakum; Alumni of Littorai Schramsberg, Keller, Stags Leap Wine Cellars. Consulting winemeker Buhman, Magnus and Italics.

AVA DESIGNATED: Carneros, Sonoma

WHAT WE TASTED: A crisp, not buttery, Chardonnay with well integrated oak, it is juicy and slightly creamy on the mid-palate. Pear, floral and apple all explode with a little cotton candy and butterscotch. Tannic in a beautiful, rich, round mouth feel way.

 WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Turbot with béarnaise (dining out at Bouchon),
  • Grilled pork chops with porcini mushroom risotto
  • Homemade spinach gruyere quiche
  • Spice rubbed grilled chicken thighs

PERSONALITY: Look a little closer on the label. The pooch drawing is made up of wine terms. Very clever those Gregg's - Kristina and Steve. And Guinness and Chase, who grace both the labels. See Pinot Gris too. This is Cult Wine for Dog Lovers!

TECHNICAL: 

  • Native fermentation, barrel aged in cave
  • Clone 4, picked past first ripeness
  • Barrel aged one year, yet low influence of oak
