2014 Valley of the Moon Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast
Our 2014 Chardonnay is sourced from the best of the Sonoma Coast, with the Russian River Valley accounting for almost the entirety of its fruit. The composition is 100% Chardonnay grapes. Our Valley of the Moon Chardonnay is a tribute to the harvesting process of picking grapes at just the right amount of ripeness which is a craft our winemaker Kat Doescher has refined and perfected. Using a combination of cool tank fermentation, light Malolactic fermentation and oak aging, this wine developed a beautiful structure and soft finish. We know you will enjoy it!
Valley of the Moon wines are produced by Madrone Estate Winery, one of Sonoma Valley's oldest and most historic winery estates. Originally founded in 1863, the Stewart Family purchased the estate - then named Valley of the Moon - in 2012 and completed a renovation to focus on estate-driven, small lot wines from the historic property. Valley of the Moon wines honor an important 75-year era when Italian proprietors Enrico Domenici and Henry Parducci grew grapes and made wines at the estate. Valley of the Moon wines are available nationally in restaurants and wine stores.
