The Cold Creek Ranch experiences maritime influences from the Pacific Ocean, which provide cool breezes and morning fog. As a result, the Chardonnay offers forward fruit flavors, lively acidity and hints of minerality.
Cold Creek Ranch is tucked away in the most Southern portion of the coveted Sonoma Coast appellation. The ranch experiences maritime influences from both the San Pablo Bay and the Pacific Ocean which provide cool breezes and morning fog. This results in Chardonnay with forward fruit flavors and lively acidity. Chateau St. Jean has been sourcing Chardonnay from the Cold Creek Ranch for its Reserve Chardonnay since the 2002 vintage. This 2016 Cold Creek Chardonnay is the tenth release of this single-vineyard bottling.
