From the producer: Aromatics of lemon curd, nectarine, creme brûlée, and nuts define the nose. Akin to aged champagne and some Jura type Chardonnays. A bright palate with minerality and texture. Dry, yet creamy with a firm acidity.
Vineyard Notes: A steep south facing hillside on Sonoma Mountain with well-drained metavolcanic soils. I was sold. Farmed by my friend and peer David Rothschild who is an upcoming figure within the natural California winemakers garde as a proud and skillful organic grower.
We love it with… 🧀🍱🍤
Size: 750 mL
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Sonoma Mountain, California
Vinification: Half of the fruit was foot tread, and pressed the following day. The other half was direct pressed. Hence the name Pegleg, one foot in one foot out (also David is half pirate). Both were barrel fermented in neutral French oak with native yeasts & bacteria. Topped, left undisturbed & sur lie for 10 months before a single racking, then bottled. No additives including no added sulfites.
