About Sponge Cake 2018 Chardonnay, Knights Valley
As the name suggests, Precision Wine Co. wines are made to showcase the complexity of flavor, diversity of terroir, and distinct characteristics of California’s best appellations and wine regions. Proprietor and vintner Trevor Sheehan brings focus and passion to every wine. His long-standing relationships with top growers combine with meticulous winemaking practices bring stellar results.
Most notably perhaps, the wines consistently over-deliver for their price, just like this Knights Valley Chardonnay from the outstanding 2018 vintage. Sourced from a single vineyard of dry farmed Wente Clone Chardonnay grapes. The dry farmed grapes are concentrated and intensely flavored. Fermented in stainless steel to retain the bright fruit notes and aged in 80% new French oak for added complexity and richness.
The wine shows notes of toasted almonds, green apples and Asian pears on the nose. Rich and creamy on the palate with flavors of apples and stone fruit finishing with lingering notes of Meyer lemon and Crème brûlée. The balance is striking as the bright acidity lifts the flavors and tingles your palate. A delicious Chardonnay at any price but a steal at under $20!
