Sonoma Cutrer 40th Anniversary Chardonnay Description
On a beautiful, sunny afternoon in middle of June 2020, with everyone isolated in their homes, our winemaking team past and present of Bill Bonetti (1981-1990), Terry Adams (1991-2010), Mick Schroeter (2010-Present) and Cara Morrison (2005-Present) virtually blended this very remarkable wine to mark this significant moment in our history.
It presents beautiful aromas of ripe pear, citrus/lime zest, baked apple fruit with light mineral notes and a touch of matchstick, flintiness for complexity. Oak components of spice, caramel, nougat and pie crust are integrated throughout. Melon and Bosc pear fruit along with lemon meringue flavors mingle with hints of toasted nuts, clove, nutmeg and oak. The wine strikes a balance between being full-bodied and delicate with a creamy mouthfeel highlighting our signature citrus acidity.
