Santa Cruz Mtns
Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay is sourced primarily (90%) from our estate vineyards - the winery estate and Gist Ranch. Other vineyard sources include Regan and Vanumanutagi.
The soil is shale and sandstone
farmed using organic and biodynamic methods
Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented using native yeasts for primary and malolactic fementations
10 months in French oak, 20% new and an additional 5 months in tank
Coming all from estate vineyards and fermented and aged in French oak (it spends six months in tank prior to bottling), the 2014 Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains is a sexy, layered, classic Chardonnay that has lots of buttered apples, white flowers and a touch of white peach in a medium-bodied, forward, ready to go style. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-3 years.
