Ceritas, Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 Sonoma Coast

16

Charles Heintz is perched just outside the town of Occidental, situating it directly in the face of coastal influences. The eroded, meagre sandstone soils drive the old vine roots deep into the bedrock.
Plenty of concentration. Nervy acidity, stone-fruit characters, mineral and slightly saline on the palate. A fine Chardonnay which is a million miles from the richer old-school Sonoma style. (AWH)
