California’s proud wine history cannot be written without the inclusion of the Central Valley’s Lodi region. Located at the northern edge of the San Joaquin Valley east of the San Francisco Bay, Lodi’s Mediterranean climate and rocky soils are home to some of the state’s oldest vines and most cherished sites, many of which were vital to the nation’s wine industry before and during Prohibition. While Napa and Sonoma have become global ambassadors for the high end luxury segment, Lodi is an integral part of the foundation that makes Californian wine great in terms of both quantity and quality. Today the region is experiencing a well-deserved renaissance with a more refined focus on small production and precise winemaking, such as our 2014 Sheehan Chardonnay.

Pale gold in color, the nose exudes floral nuances of jasmine and honeysuckle with a rich undertone of poached pear and a vibrant expression of oyster shell. Rich and luscious on the palate, honey dipped apple flavors are balanced by nuances of lemon and pineapple. The wine finishes with a beautiful creamy texture and fleshy flavors of pear and apricot. A truly delicious example of California Chardonnay.
