This is the estate Chardonnay from one of our newest producers, the pioneering Ernest Vineyards from the Sonoma Coast. Grown in cool-climate sites at the heart of the chilly Freestone Valley, this is a pale Chardonnay that impresses with its refreshing acidity and delicate mouthfeel. 

93/100 - The 2021 Chardonnay Estate, from vineyards in Freestone, is terrific. Bright and effusive, with striking depth, the Estate is super-expressive right out of the gate. Tangerine oil, white flowers, mint and white pepper lend notable aromatic intensity. I love the richness here. This is beautifully done. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

93/100 - A blend of Joyce and Cleary Ranch, with two very distinct soils, a sandy loam at Joyce and a higher clay content at John Cleary Ranch. There are some climatic conditions that create more diversity. These differences have a distinction: the Joyce is mineral driven and lean, the Cleary site offers roundness and fleshy character from Cleary without high alcohol, and there is a sunkissed nature to the 22s given a heat spike near harvest 15 months elevage in 33% new oak and a sandstone amphora with half the porosity of oak. Honeyed apricot. - Clive Pursehouse, Decanter

On the nose, notes of citrus blossom, orchard fruit, oranges, and candied almonds.
On the palate, mouth-watering flavours of juicy cara-cara oranges and ripe apples. Excitingly refreshing, this wine is pleasantly acidic without being abrasive.

The words clean and fresh gets thrown around a lot these days but, in this case, it is the perfect description of this cool-climate Chardonnay.

The Ernest Estate is anchored in the heart of the Freestone Valley, an area deeply defined by the extreme cold temperatures and blanketing fog from the chilly Pacific Ocean. The challenging growing conditions reward with wines of structure and restraint.
