Winemaking Notes

The 2018 Amici Cellars Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is a classic Chardonnay with finesse and elegance and a balance of density and fruit. Enticing honey roasted grains, rustic green apple pie, apricot and lemon curd lead to a delicious palate of chewy golden pineapple, bartlett pear, caramel and lemon custard. This mouthwatering Chardonnay is fresh and lively with a long and rich lemon oil finish.

“Moving to the four Chardonnays I was able to taste, the 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast reveals a light gold color as well as a classy nose of baked apples, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toast. It’s clean, classy, and medium-bodied, with a great finish. Drink bottles over the coming 2-4 years.”

“Cooked-apple, yogurt and light coconut aromas follow through to the full body with layers of fruit and flavor. A little obvious, but delicious for a more upfront style. Drink now.”

“The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers lovely butterscotch and dried apricots notes leading to wafts of poached pears and allspice. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers loads of verve and intensity, finishing on a lingering spicy note.”
