Product Description

93WA "Melon, pears, white flowers, graphite and crushed rocks come to life in the 2010 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast). A vivid, complex wine, the 2010 stands out for its nuance and overall level of complexity. Constantly changing, the 2010 is at once beautifully delineated, yet soft, supple and expressive. In 2010, the Chardonnay was made from 82% Gaps Crown and 18% Obsidian fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, 93 points!

100% Chardonnay aged in neutral French oak for 18 months.

Wind gaps are geological breaks in the coastal hills that funnel wind inland and strongly influence the growing and ripening of grapes. It seemed only fitting to Wind Gap Wines to choose the name that celebrates the forces of nature that are shaping their wines. Wind Gap is not about making the "perfect wine", it is about making honest, authentic and compelling wine from special vineyard sites, with subtle nuances and characteristics that tell a particular wine's story regardless of appellation.

"Readers who have not yet discovered Wind Gap owe it to themselves to do so. These are some of the most gorgeous, nuanced wines being made in California today. Mahle continues to experiment with concrete and larger casks, both of which seem ideally suited to a minimalist approach that seeks to draw out the maximum expression of each of these sites. The Wind Gap wines achieve that elusive balance of depth without excess heaviness. Once again, I was deeply impressed with the range I tasted and can't recommend these wines highly enough." - Antonio Galloni
