Field Recordings, Wonderwall Chardonnay Edna Valley 2018
Exactly what you secretly still want from Californian Chardonnay! Rich golden fruit, luscious palate and fragrance, with enough oak to lift and enhance, without overpowering. Lovely acid to balance and a crisp, long finish. Exactly what a California Chardonnay should be, and more!
Field Recordings is 38-year old winemaker Andrew Jones personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamonds in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards. The Field Recordings wines are a catalog of single vineyard sites that produces wines with a sense of place and personality. In addition to the single vineyard wines, multi-vineyard blends are put together under the Wonderwall and FICTION labels. Wonderwall focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from extreme, coastal locations. Breaking through and breaking rules. FICTION, the original spin-off label, is a white, red and rose wine produced from multiple vineyards and multiple varieties. Taking what the season gives us and creating a blend made for every occasion. Ready for tonight, tomorrow or this weekend.
