2014 Sonoma "@ Chardonnay" - Deerfield Ranch Winery
Lemon custard, roasted almond, baked cinnamon apple. Juicy mango slices, garden herbs, grilled pineapple. Passionfruit and toasted mini-marshmallow mixed into greek yogurt, eaten while stepping into a neighborhood flower shop. This 2014 Sonoma "@ Chardonnay" by Deerfield Ranch Winery is cheerful, lightedheart, and yummy!
Deerfield Ranch Winery prides themselves on making clean wine. Everything they produce is natural with no additives or artificial enhancements (and only minimal sulfur). This barrel-fermented Chardonnay was aged for 18 months in neutral oak and exhibits a fruity, toasty, slightly oxidative style without that often maligned heavy new oak butter texture. As the label would suggest this wine seems designed for a millennial audience, but its also actually quite interesting and enjoyable for those with seasoned palates. Perfect to share with friends during a relaxing summer picnic, its interesting and unpretentious with a fun label and a very modest price tag.
