The 2019 Laurelwood Chardonnay is a blend of Ponzi’s original 1970s historic estate chardonnay and LIVE Certified Sustainable Avellana and Aurora Vineyards blended with Paloma , Alloro, and Three Cedars Vineyards all planted on Laurelwood soil in the Laurelwood AVA.
“Floral notes of honeysuckle, white lavender and citrus blooms lead to a complex nose of mandarin, white peach, mango, lemongrass and ginger. The mouth is full and reminiscent of a light meringue with notes of honeycomb, dried pineapple and shortbread all framed by a lively acidity and a beautiful salty fresh finish.” – Luisa Ponzi, Director of Winemaking and Viticulture
