Buy Sebastiani Chardonnay Carneros
Our 2009 Carneros Chardonnay has all the hallmarks of a cool vintage. The aromatics are infused with Asian pear, lemon zest, hazelnuts and baked bread. The palate is medium bodied with suggestions of yellow apples, vanilla and toasty oak. The finish delivers buttered pear, marzipan and crisp acidity. This vibrant, fruit-driven wine was bottled unfiltered to protect the inherent flavor of terroir and variety. It is restrained, elegant and delicious.

Wine maker notes
After hand picking and whole-cluster pressing, the juice was settled for 48 hours prior to barrel fermentation in Francois Freres Allier French oak barrels (44% new). A combination of indigenous and Burgundian yeast strains ensured authenticity and additional complexity in the aromatics and texture. Aggressive lees stirring imparted both roundness and nuttiness. The wine was racked in December of 2010, lightly fined and bottled unfiltered in February, 2011.
