Banshee Chardonnay 2018, Sonoma Coast
This coastal wine has zippy acidity that bounces on the palate and plays nicely with the honeysuckle, lemon and citrus blossom flavors with hints of cedar and minerality.
The soils here are of the classic Goldridge series, light and well drained. The vines in this tiny plot are densely packed to 3x4 spacing to promote competition between the Hyde clone Chardonnay vines. Banshee is the sole recipient of this special fruit. The The temperate growing season of 2018 allowed for delicate aromas and flavors to develop slowly in these Chardonnay blocks.
