About the wine

This is an entirely singular (that is, you’ve never tasted a California white like it) Chardonnay from Subject to Change Wine Company who operate out of Mendocino County on the North Coast of California. The project is headed up by a collaboration of friends, between winemakers Alex Pomerantz (formerly of Kivelstadt Cellars in Sonoma) and Brad Friedman (formerly of Big Basin in the Santa Cruz Mountains), as well as fellow co-founders Kim and Joe Rosenberg. The original ethos - and one practiced through today - is to key in on organically-farmed single-vineyard sites, typically tended by California growers and farmers they’ve long respected, especially in terms of how heroic and historically undersung these growers have been in the ever-burgeoning world of California wine. The Chardonnay grapes in this cuvée specifically were sourced from Coastview Vineyard, an otherworldly site on an exposed ridge, riddled with decomposed granite and limestone, of the eastern slopes of the Salinas Valley at elevations between 2300-2400 feet. This site is within the Central Coast AVA (so, pretty far south from where Subject to Change vinifies the grapes up in Mendocino), inland from Monterey Bay, and more specifically in a growing area known as the Mt. Harlan AVA of the North Central Coast.

Tasting Notes: Skeptics with an aversion to Chardonnay, fear not... This is not your average California chard… Peach, lemon custard, and zippy acidity. A white with a bit of weight and texture, but gorgeous fruit and bright citrus elements to give it lift. Enjoy with a light pasta or drink it before dinner on its own.

Vinification: 100% Chardonnay, hand-harvested from 30 year-old vines atop decomposed granitic and limestone soils at 2400 feet elevation. Whole-cluster directly-pressed Chardonnay goes into neutral barrel where the juice will ferment and age for 5 months. Unfined, unfiltered, no additional SO2. 12.5% ABV.
