Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay 2016
Like all of our Decoy wines, our Decoy Sonoma County Chardonnay benefits from the passion, skill and experience of our Duckhorn Wine Company team. Exploring the diversity of the Sonoma County winegrowing region allows our winemaking team greater flexibility during the blending process. Stretching from Cloverdale to Annapolis to San Pablo Bay, Sonoma County encompasses an array of microclimates, soil types, elevations, and terroirs, yielding a unique and appealing expression of Chardonnay. This deliciously bright and inviting Chardonnay offers layers of apricot, citrus and summer melon, as well as hints of fresh honeysuckle. On the palate, the lovely pure fruit flavors are underscored by delicate acidity and a supple richness from the sur lie aging.
