2014 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

2014 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

Gap’s Crown Vineyard is situated on Roberts Road just above the Sangiacomo Vineyard. This is a high-end hillside vineyard that has been quickly gathering acclaim. 2014 was our inaugural vintage producing Chardonnay from this vineyard after making Pinot noir from the same site since 2007. The Price Family Vineyards team farms Gap’s Crown to exacting standards of quality and precision. We source Chardonnay from two distinct blocks withing the vineyard, each providing key pieces of the wine profile. The clusters are typically small and dense with prominent hen and chick berries. This wine is focused and balanced with zesty aromas of citrus, flint and floral notes that lead to flavors of stone fruit and lychee. The texture is full-bodied, smooth and persistent. This is our most mineral-driven Chardonnay produced, offering layers of depth and nuance. This wine should appeal to both Francophiles and new-world Chardonnay fans alike.
