The 2018 Sangiacomo Chardonnay is lighter in gold color than previous years with enormous aromatics. Pure jasmine, white peach, and honeysuckle are immediate. White pepper, vanilla bean and a light soapstone minerality start to come off the glass. The wine has a wonderful mouthfeel, with more of the floral elements and soft tropical fruit on the palate with a long honeysuckle spice finish.
Barnett Vineyards' first harvest was in 1989 and yielded 232 cases of Cabernet. The winery has expanded gradually since then, selecting outstanding vineyard sites for grapes in addition to those grown on the estate, and now produces approximately 8,000 total cases. Rattlesnake and Spring Mountain District wines, including Merlot and Cabernet Franc, remain the focus with total estate production varying between 5,000 and 6,000 cases annually. In addition, we produce limited amounts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc sourced from single vineyards located in desired appellations.
