The Character

Tasting Notes We get a ton of ripe, green fruit and citrus – green apple, kiwi, tangerine – along with some tropical floral top notes. Jasmine. Plumeria. Again, there’s a mineral streak throughout—the Stone Vineyard signature. It’s crisp and fragrant and has the body to hold up to, but not overpower, whatever you’re quaranteating or that Zoom conversation you’re having at 4:30.

Overall Compelling and Delicious

Aromas Ripe, green fruit, and citrus.

Pairings Pair with french onion dip and kettle chips.

The Story

The 2019 Stone Vineyard Chardonnay is so fresh that if you pop a bottle now, you won’t be able to push the cork back in. Just finish that bottle. Coming from our family’s original vineyard planted in 1972, we have sold these grapes to many esteemed producers over the years. We’re now keeping the best lots for ourselves, and the Carpenter Chard comes mainly from the Gravel Bar Block, a swath of vineyard that was once part of Maacama Creek, a 7.3-mile-long tributary of the Russian River. It’s often socked in with morning fog and cooled by afternoon breezes. As Jake says, It’s virtually impossible to make anything but delicious wine from this site.

About Carpenter

Brand Story

Carpenter is a collaborative effort, and we want to thank all of the talented and hardworking people who have made it possible: the farmers, the pickers and pruners, the rig drivers, the suitcase-clone-smugglers, the barrel-makers, the hose draggers and tank cleaners, the sales team, the bottle-, cork-, label- and foil-makers, the bottling and delivery team, zee winemaker, and above all, Mother Nature. Sonoma County is an ideal place to grow grapes, and we have been fortunate to farm here for the last 46 years. This wine is a celebration of place and people: salud!
