2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Single Vineyard

Both the Dalecio releases are made with help of consultant Philippe Melka and come from the Reuling Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. Starting with the 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast, it’s a brilliant effort that has a rich, powerful feel yet stays incredibly pure, crystalline, and vibrant at the same time. Notes of white flowers, white currants, salt block and background oak all show on the nose. This is up with some of the top Chardonnays in the vintage and will keep for at least 7 – 8 years.
