"The 2021 Chardonnay Campbell Ranch is intensely floral, effusive and tropical in its first impression, beautifully layered and creamy, the 2021 is super-impressive. Hints of tangerine oil, mint, lemon confit and a kiss of French oak meld together nicely. The 2021 is a bit richer than some previous wines here. It's a style that works so well."

Vineyards and Winemaking

  • Vineyard location: Crafted from grapes grown in the Campbell Ranch vineyard located in the Annapolis region of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyard is located at an elevation of 750-1,100 feet above sea level and is planted on well-draining soils.
  • Farming practices: Farmed using sustainable and organic practices. The vineyard is dry-farmed, and the grapes are handpicked to ensure the highest quality fruit is used in the winemaking process.
  • Climate: Cool, coastal and heavily influenced by the Pacific Ocean. The region experiences moderate temperatures and abundant fog, which creates a long, slow growing season for the grapes.
  • Harvest: Handpicked in early September, at optimal ripeness. The fruit was carefully sorted to ensure only the best grapes were used in the wine.
  • Aging: Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 35% of which were new.
  • Bottling: Bottled in August 2022, after undergoing a light filtration.

Tasting Notes

  • Aromas: Lemon zest, white flowers, and a hint of vanilla.
  • Taste: Fresh and vibrant, with flavours of green apple, pear, and a touch of minerality.
  • Finish: Long and refreshing, with a lingering creaminess.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Pair with seafood dishes, particularly grilled prawns or scallops. It also complements roasted chicken or pasta with cream sauce.
