2018 Gap's Crown Chardonnay
Gaps Crown Vineyard boasts steep hillsides, high density planting, rocky terrain, and immaculate farming, making winemakers clamor for access to its spectacular fruit. Gaps Crown sits at the northeastern end of the “Petaluma Gap”. This unique area holds ocean wind and fog from Tomales Bay and Bodega Bay. Funneling in during the evening, this fog gets trapped by the Sonoma Mountain hills, and lingers well into the following afternoon. This cool foggy climate makes for smaller yields, longer hang time, brighter acidity, and an intensity of flavor.
