Bydand Chardonnay Sonoma Coast
Bydand Wines
United States - California - Sonoma Coast

This Chardonnay is sourced from one of the crown jewels of the esteemed Sangiacomo winegrowing family: Roberts Road Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap AVA. Marked by coastal winds, foggy mornings, and well-draining gravel soils, this site enjoys a long, slow, and even growing season. Dijon clone 95 Chardonnay vines planted in 1998 impart minerality and vibrancy to a full-bodied wine with impressive purity of flavor. Silky, expressive, and seamless.
