THE VINEYARD : Since 1912, the Heintz family has owned and operated this beautiful site just east of the town of Occidental. Located at about 900 feet elevation on Goldridge sandy loam soils and with the cool ocean influence, the Heintz Vineyard’s fruit is a quintessential expression of the Sonoma Coast. The Heintz Chardonnay was planted in 1982 to Clone 4, commonly known as the Wente Clone, and is a highly sought after vineyard for premium wine producers. The coastal influence balanced by the clonal selection gives the wine a great acid backbone with a rich palate and a touch of minerality.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES : Bright citrus notes of lemon zest and orange blossom burst from the glass and are followed by aromas of nectarine, white peach, and apricot skin. On the palate, the acidity is vibrant and lively. The wine shows great texture with a slightly creamy note due to extended time on the lees. The finish is smooth, balanced, and lingers on the palate.
