The Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay shows keen acidity with Meyer lemon and exotic floral aromas backed by subtle saline nuances. These complex aromatics are complemented by chamomile, Mandarin orange, and key lime flavors, with a lingering finish of green apple and underlying mineral flavors—a truly unique expression of terroir along the western edge of Sonoma County.

Seascape Vineyard is a six-acre site on a scenic ridgetop, located west of the town of Occidental, in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyard abuts an old redwood grove and looks down upon Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The well-known Coastlands Vineyard also borders the property. Because there is no ridge between the ocean and the vineyard, Seascape is in an extremely cold spot, and Chardonnay is often picked in November – unusual to say the least. The vineyard is cropped to about two tons per acre to ensure thorough ripening. Although a challenging spot to farm, the reward at Seascape is Chardonnay grapes brimming with personality and a very distinctive terroir.

Wine Advocate

The 2019 Chardonnay Seascape Vineyard is complex and intense with soaring aromatics and a very concentrated, spicy expression. It has exotic scents of apricot, ginger, grilled pineapple and blood orange, hinting at some possible botrytis. It makes for a singular expression and complements the satiny, expansive palate. It offers layers of tropical tones, honey, exotic spice and seamless acidity, and it finishes with tremendous length. The Seascape Vineyard is located at 1,150 feet in elevation, west of Occidental, and faces Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It was barrel fermented and matured for 13 months in 27% new French oak. 275 cases were made.
