Rodney Strong Description
At Rodney Strong Vineyards, we focus on modern artisan winemaking and wines from Sonoma County, California. Our family owned winery is committed to quality wines and to protecting our resources for the future. We are solar powered, practice sustainable and Fish Friendly Farming and we are Sonoma County's first carbon neutral winery. Our Sonoma County Chardonnay displays lemon and apple aromas with hints of toasty oak, pear and pineapple. It was grown in cooler areas of Sonoma County, where Rod Strong was among the first to plant Chardonnay in the gravelly soils just twenty miles from the Pacific Ocean.
Rodney Strong barrel fermented 60% of this wine and aged that portion in barrel for 6 months, stirring the lees every month. This method offers the wine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the remainder to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. This Sonoma County Chardonnay displays aromas of baked apple, pear and pineapple along with apple blossom aromas. On the palate, the baked fruit and toasty nutmeg leads to a creamy, well-balanced finish. Enjoy this lively Chardonnay with soft mild cheeses, pasta with a white cream sauce or roasted turkey.
