Cleary Ranch (The Farmer) Chardonnay 2017
Downslope from his father's Freestone Hill Vineyard, John Cleary and his family have a parcel of West Sonoma Coast vineyard land: a 6-acre plot. Ernest has leased and farmed this site since 2015, which, as our coldest vineyard, is a challenging task in even the best years. The wine appears white gold in hue with an unmistakable tension revealing itself amongst aromatics of bright acidity, pear, and honeydew. Green apples, blood oranges, and unripe pears meet a slightly toasted nuttiness on the palate, all framed by pronounced acid and complex texture.
