Winery: "While there is vintage variation, Smoke Tree Chardonnay is a blended wine from multiple vineyards across the county appellation. With that, consistency from vintage to vintage – and a style of balance, elegance and vibrancy – is easier to achieve.

Select cool climate vineyards across Sonoma County provide the ideal range of fruit for Smoke Tree Chardonnay. Winemaker Joel Burt blends older blocks of Old Wente and Robert Young clones with newer Dijon plantings. By working with eight vineyard partners, he selects fruit with bright, balanced flavors, lifted aromatics and mineral expression. The majority of the fruit for the 2015 vintage came from the windswept Carneros region, the hillsides of Alexander Valley and the Fountaingrove District. The handpicked grapes were whole-cluster pressed. Forty percent of the lots were barrel fermented and the remainder were fermented in tank. 70% of the wines completed malolactic fermentation for added complexity. The wine was aged for 9 months in a combination of neutral oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks to create a wine that is clean and balanced. During aging, the wine received minimal battonage to preserve its minerality and freshness.

Fresh and balanced, Smoke Tree Chardonnay offers aromas of Asian pear, Meyer lemon and white nectarine. The palate is vibrant with flavors of Golden Delicious, apple and apricot, and light floral notes. The finish is crisp and long."
