2011 Chardonnay, Sonoma Valley 750ml 6-Pack

Our 2011 Chardonnay was produced from a blend of grapes from a vineyard in Carneros, Hobert Nelson’s steep, east facing vineyard on Sonoma Mountain, and our Estate vineyard. As with the wonderful 2009 and 2010 vintages, we cold fermented about 25% of the total blend in stainless steel and used a limited amount of new oak for the barrel fermented portion.

Our goal has always been to produce wines with both intensity and great balance, to maximize the inherent quality of the grapes. The most important aspects of this quest are growing or purchasing great grapes, paying attention to detail, and keeping an open mind. Our cardinal rule in winemaking is that there are no rules, no formulas, no “right” way. Our knowledge base grows with each vintage, but the grapes vary with each vintage and need to be treated differently to produce the best wine possible.

This medium bodied Chardonnay features complex aromas and flavors of pear, citrus, green apple, elder flower, nutmeg and a hint of toasty oak, with sufficient acid to give a clean, crisp finish. In describing this wine, the term nervosity comes to mind It is bright and lively and will make a much superior dinner companion than so many of the sweet, oaky, disjointed Chardonnays being produced these days.

Winery Details

Wellington Vineyards

Owner:
Peter Wellington
Founded:
1986
Location:
Glen Ellen, CA

Wellington Vineyards is owned Peter Wellington. Peter's father John purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. We grow approximately half the grapes we use and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards.

The estate vineyards consist of 21 acres, 8 of which are 85 to 117 years old. There are 24 different varieties in the old vineyard, with the most common being Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Grenache and Syrah. In addition, there are 10 acres of eleven to sixteen year old vines that consist of Merlot, Chardonnay, Marsanne, and Syrah. We grow more Merlot than anything else. Three more acres were replanted in 2001, predominantly to Syrah, Zinfandel and Grenache.
