2017 Catie's Corner Chardonnay
  • 2017 Catie's Corner Chardonnay


    This single vineyard, Russian River Valley Chardonnay is made in a beautifully light and refreshing style that accentuates the tropical flavors of the grape. To avoid the typical California oaky and buttery profile, we fermented and aged this wine in neutral oak barrels to allow the fruit character to shine. 

    • Vineyard Information

      Located in the Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma, Catie’s Corner is an ideal location for beautiful Chardonnay with the cooling maritime influences and perfect soil conditions. Located on sandy loam soils known as “goldridge soil”, the river benchland location of Catie’s Corner provides the vines with perfect amount of nutrient access along with beneficial cooling influences which allow for perfect ripening conditions. It is not uncommon for daily temperatures to vary 30-40 degrees from high to low, which is great for grape development and acid retention which you will notice as soon as you taste our wine!
