Wine maker notes
Select cool climate vineyards across Sonoma County provide the ideal range of fruit profiles for Smoke Tree Chardonnay. Winemaker Joel Burt blends older blocks of Old Wente and Robert Young clones with newer plantings of Dijon 124 and 96. Most of the fruit comes from the windswept Carneros region on shallow clay soils where the fruit shows citrus and apple profiles with a thread of minerality. The high western slopes of the Mayacamas Mountain range provide Chardonnay fruit that is late ripening, resulting in apricot and yellow nectarine notes. A small amount of Chardonnay from Russian River Valley and a canyon just over the county line in Mendocino add a plush layer of fruit over the firm Carneros frame.

Food pairing
Smoke Tree Chardonnay is delicious on its own. For creative pairing opportunities, pair Smoke Tree with citrus inspired cuisine, roasted poultry or fresh seafood.

What is the meaning behind the name Smoke Tree? The smoke tree is a rare gem and, in its nuance and rarity, emblematic of our winemaking approach. Our Sonoma County Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are elegant, complex and varietally correct, all at an affordable price to the consumer. Smoke Tree winemaker Joel Burt brings a detailed approach to super-premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Joel incorporates diverse fruit profiles and tailors the winemaking process to individual plots, resulting in wines of elegance, complexity, and authenticity.
