As the second offering in our Winemaker’s Release series, Legacy is an exquisite selection born of our passion for creating the very finest Chardonnay. To craft this exclusive ‘best of the best’, we brought together the talents of our three head winemakers over the years and asked them to hand-select barrels within our 2012 vintage. The results speak for themselves – a truly unique cuvée that captures the 30+ year legacy of winemaking at Sonoma-Cutrer.
Truly an expression of the Winemaker’s art; this wine is rich and complex with diverse aromas of apple, peach, nougat, caramel, honey and crème brûlée. Look forward to a creamy, plush mouth feel accented with flavors of peach, pear, ripe apple and toasted pecan. Lemon acidity with a cream note leads to a classic, crisp Sonoma-Cutrer finish.
