Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon 2009

Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon 750ml 2009     
Sku: 1702969*

This release marks the fourteenth consecutive bottling of this unique and 30 year old site with which we have worked since our inception in 1996. Planted on its own roots in 1980 to a Wente selection and dry farmed in a mixture of river silt and diatomaceous earth.

Tasting notes
Aromas of stone fruit, white flower and dried pineapple followed by flavors of passion fruit and young fig. Relatively stern and tannic in the mouth with lingering persistence.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Aug 2011)
The 2009 Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon shows a deep, baritone register in its dark, rich fruit, licorice and earthiness. This is a decidedly larger-scaled style of Chardonnay endowed with generous fruit and a powerful, muscular finish. I find this a little less elegant than some of the other 2009 Chardonnays, but that is really splitting hairs at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017.
