California’s cool vintage in 2011 translates into especially vivid, bright citrus flavors in this mountain-grown Chardonnay.
What You Need To Know
Enkidu’s winemaker and owner, Phil Staehle, has a knack for finding choice vineyards from Napa and Sonoma counties’ under-the-radar spots, having made wine at noted estates in both regions for more than a decade. This Chardonnay comes from Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak, a new, mountainous district that overlaps part of northern Sonoma County. Defined by its elevation, the region lies at elevations from 1,600 to 3,000 feet, making it one of the state’s highest winegrowing zones. Fog-free days and brisk coastal breezes mean that grapes ripen fully but not too fast, a key to developing complex flavors. Staehle fermented the wine in barrels to give it a silky texture.
