"Sure buddy, we've got two Anaba chardonnays. Would you prefer the Wente Clone?"

This fruit was hand-harvested early in the morning  to ensure the coldest juice possible and came into the winery in exceptional condition and was whole cluster pressed. 60% of the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 50 degrees without malolactic fermentation. 40% of the wine was barrel fermented, its lees stirred for 10 weeks post fermentation. Barrel fermented wine went through malolactic fermentation. This partial malolactic fermentation helps the wine retain its acidity and freshness. The wine spent 11 months in 100% French oak barrels, 22% of which were new. The preferred barrel coopers include Francois Freres, Sirugue, and Taransaud.

Winery Details

Anaba Wines

Founded:
2003
Owner:
John Sweazey
Location:
Sonoma, CA
On tranquil summer days, as golden sun kisses the valleys and hills of vineyards in Sonoma, unique air currents bring cooling breezes inland from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Wafting softly, with some gusts and gales, they glide through the vineyard rows. As they encounter steeper slopes and drift upward, they become anabatic winds. Soaring glider pilots rely on them for flight. We treasure them for the coolness they impart on their journey — a gift of nature that makes the vineyard more temperate and slows the ripening process, producing robust flavors and distinctive varietal characters in our grapes.
 
Our exclusive Anaba wines are handcrafted from the best Rhône and Burgundian grape varieties grown at our Carneros Estate vineyard and in selected outstanding vineyard properties throughout Sonoma County. Our Rhône-style wines are artistic blends, inspired by the rugged earthiness of France's Rhône Valley and replicated in the rocky Sonoma soils. Our Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs reflect the elegance and grace of the gently sloping vineyards found in Burgundy, crafted from similar sites in the Sonoma Coast and Carneros appellations.
 
Anaba…elegant, classic wines borne by the wind.
