2019 Chardonnay | Petersen Vineyard Stainless Steel
The successor to the winner of best white wine at the 2019 Sonoma County Harvest Fair, this wine carries on the tradition, winning best in class at the 2020 East Meets West Wine Challenge. 100% stainless steel aging means no influence from oak barrels, so the winemaker can accentuate tropical notes and fruit flavors over the soft, buttery textures of oak-aged Chardonnays. It is a bright, crisp wine with strong fruit flavor and a very subtle sweetness.
Winner, East Meets West Wine Challenge:
- Best of Class - 96 rating
- Double Gold - 96 rating
