The core of Sojourn Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay is from the same vineyard source as the highly-acclaimed Sojourn Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir wines. This wine features a combination of Clone 95 Chardonnay from Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard and Old Wente Clone from Sangiacomo Vella Ranch. The Roberts Road block, planted in 1998, provides minerality and vibrancy. The Old Wente Clone selection is known to produce distinctively small clusters, low yields, and results in elegant, complex wines that round out this blend. These ranches are perfectly suited for growing Chardonnay, with cool climates and well-draining soils.
Sojour Chardonnay is fresh and lively, fruit-forward with bright acidity, stone fruit, citrus and apple flavors that leave your mouth watering.

"From a site on the Sonoma Coast, the 2019 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard has a kiss of salty, seaside-like character to go with similar orchard fruits, brioche, and honeyed herb-like nuances. This medium-bodied, nicely textured, bright and juicy Chardonnay should keep for 2-3 years."

"The 2018 Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay is another gorgeous release by Sojourn Cellars. The wine utilizes Clone 95 and Went Clones as the wine was aged in 30% new French oak before bottling. The wine begins with aromas of sourdough bread and shades of kumquat zest and clove which find their way in the glass. The palate has a marvelous texture and mouthfeel, accented by apple and lemon cream flavors that linger through the finish. - O.Bargreen"

"The 2018 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard offers a bigger, richer style. Lots of apple pie, brioche, honeysuckle, and toasted almond notes dominate the bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, has loads of fruit, and shows the rounded, mouthfilling, silky style of the vintage beautifully."

"The 2018 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard has delicate scents of white blossoms, cashews and poached pears. The palate is light-bodied, fresh and mega silky, beginning delicately and gaining in amplitude on the long, honeyed finish. This will benefit from another couple years in bottle. 400 cases produced. - Erin Brooks"
