2016 Saxon Brown Chardonnay 'Sangiacomo-Green Acres'
One of the most sought-after sections of the Sangiacomo Vineyard, “Green Acres Hill” is distinguished by its coveted blend of site and clone. Perched on a knoll overlooking Fowler Creek and planted to the venerable Old Wente clone, the sustainably farmed vines benefit from well-drained, alluvial-gravelly soils and the region’s signature afternoon winds, all of which combine to extend the growing season, reduce the yields and concentrate the fruit flavors.
93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "The 2016 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard Green Acres Hill features orange blossom, quince, white peach and slivered almonds scents on the nose. It's medium to full-bodied in the mouth with intense honeyed fruits, great freshness and a lively, mineral-tinged finish. 115 cases produced."
