This Carneros Chardonnay has hints of pear, yellow apple, lemon yogurt, white peach and white flowers like jasmine. It is dry and medium-bodied with just a touch of spice from the 10% being aged in neutral French oak barrels.
Organic farming practices, only 2,500 cases produced.
The Wonderland Project was founded in 2010 by wine broker and former sommelier, Matt Ahern with the help of pedigreed Sonoma grape growers. After years of selling wine to elite restaurants in the Western US, Ahern realized that there was something missing from most wine lists: a high-quality wine made from high quality fruit, with enough refinement for the most discerning palette at an accessible cost. In 2010, unable to find just the right wine to fill this niche, Ahern decided to make it himself. The Wonderland Project produces Sonoma County Appellation Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from organically farmed vineyards in Carneros.
“We rely on native yeast fermentations and minimal interventionist methods. We celebrate California . . . the way it once was.”
