This is from old Wente clones of Chardonnay from the Green Acres hills site. The nose shows a light butterscotch with a light dollop of tropical fruits. The palate is focused and clean with a touch of citrus and a light kiss of oak. The acid is moderate on this well balanced wine. D&M Tasting Notes
Sangiacomo Green Acres Hills Vineyard.
Planted in 1969 to just 5 acres of the prized Old Wente Clone [a rare, noble Chardonnay from Meurseault], Green Acres Hills Vineyard is hallowed ground for Chardonnay in Sonoma Carneros. In the summer, blue-grey fingers of Pacific Ocean fog descend over the hills, lingering well into late morning the next day while afternoon Bay breezes provide a cooling encore - all helping fruit ripen slowly to produce an aromatic, intensely concentrated Chardonnay with a compelling acid backbone.
