Etre Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast 2019 13.8% alcohol New Release organic farming Winemaker Notes: “Bright mango, pineapple, golden apple, and alpine strawberry flavors seamlessly integrate with rich hazelnut, nutmeg and almond crème nuanced by hints of wet slate.” Made by Gaffner, the Etre label (from Raison D’Etre, or reason for being) is owned by his partner Tracey Walker. From the acclaimed raised alluvial, cool and windy Sangiacomo Vineyard, this lush and mouth-filling Chardonnay is cold- fermented very slowly for months in stainless tanks sur lie, with battonage for richness, but no malolactic conversion and no oak. Styled after Chablis, it shows more richness, roundness and persistence than expected. Unfined, lightly filtered. Great Value. 250 cases.
