Chardonnay

Melka Mekerra Sonoma Valley
Select Vintage
Available exclusively to VIP/Elite members

This small production of Chardonnay from our high elevation vineyard is becoming a joy to produce. The aromatics announce a wine that is inviting and full of elegance, sporting banana, apricot, tropical notes and loaded with
minerality. It is creamy and rich with lively acid and a long balanced lingering finish. The aromatics perfectly match the mouthfeel and this refined Chardonnay would pair nicely with any unctuous creme based dessert.

“This is by far our best Chardonnay to date. It is a classic wine showing pure varietal character."

Available exclusively to VIP members

Our first vintage of Chardonnay produced from this 2500 foot elevation vineyard in Knights Valley.  The Chardonnay has eastern exposure - the only block on this site with that orientation.  Aromas exhibiting notes of tropical fruit, bananas, and subtle oak and a creamy sensation follow with slight acidity and excellent texture which resonates as a rich wine.  The combination of native yeasts and inoculated yeasts have created a wine with great complexity and length in the finish.
