Chardonnay

The 2017 Olema Chardonnay, made by Amici Cellars, is a blend produced from premier vineyards in Sonoma County, with grapes coming from the Russian River Sonoma Coast appellations. A portion of the blend was aged in barrels for a rich, creamy texture with the remainder fermented in stainless steel which preserves the bright, vibrant fruit and crispness.

Vintage Notes

For Amici, the 2017 wine grape harvest will truly be remembered as a harvest of teamwork and dedication showed on all levels from our team, colleagues, friends and the first responders that saved our homes and livelihood. Our grapes were unaffected by the wildfires and this vintage is showing great promise with excellent quality, vibrancy and complexity to drink young or show through the years.

Winemaking Notes

Classic aromas of pippin apples honeyed stone fruit, ripe lemon, honeydew melon, marzipan and cinnamon stick. Rich oily palate of golden apple, bartlet pear and savory lemon zest and thyme.
