2017 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

An artistic blend sourced from distinct areas within the vast Sonoma Coast AVA.

Vineyard Notes
Highlighting the beauty of the appellation each year, our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is an artistic blend sourced from distinct areas within the vast Sonoma Coast AVA. Each of the vineyard locations contribute to the balance and beauty of this wine – from the wind swept regions in the southern end to the cool and foggier regions in the north. The 2017 vintage was an excellent one— well-balanced with moderate yields due to a heat spike later in the season. We were very fortunate to have picked all of our fruit prior to the October 2017 North Bay Fires, so the widespread devastation did not affect our wines.

Tasting Notes
Lovely notes of tropical fruit complement, rather than overwhelm, a bouquet of lemon meringue, vanilla wafer, and winter citrus. Expressing a hint of minerality and a slight savory quality, the palate is both nuanced and familiar.

Anaba Wines was founded in 2006 by proprietor John Sweazey when a decades long dream came to fruition. Early inspiration and trips to France in the 1970s helped shape the vision, varietals and vibe for the vineyards and tasting room.

Anaba’s name originates from cool, upward-flowing anabatic winds that soar and swirl through its sustainably-farmed Carneros Estate vineyards. Gifts of nature, these unique air currents make the vineyard more temperate, slow down the ripening process, and allow the grapes to develop more robust flavors and distinctive varietal characteristics.

Anaba Wines became the first winery in Northern California to utilize wind power when it installed a 45-foot wind turbine to harness the anabatic winds. This wind turbine generates electricity for Anaba’s tasting room, wine storage, office operations and irrigation pumps for the two estate vineyards.

The Anaba tasting room is a charming, recently-renovated 100-year-old farmhouse that provides an intimate and unpretentious tasting experience in which to enjoy Anaba’s award-winning wines. Anaba’s limited edition, superior quality blends and single varietal wines include Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Rhone-style blends and an excellent selection of dessert wines. Enjoy a simple picnic or a leisurely tasting on the spacious and peaceful patio overlooking Anaba’s fruitful grounds.
