The boundary of the North Coast AVA encompasses many smaller wine appellations, which generally have higher consumer appeal and therefore higher commercial value. Wine produced primarily from grapes grown in any one of these appellations will likely carry that appellation on its bottle label rather than the North Coast AVA designation. The North Coast AVA designation is primarily used on bottles of wine created by blending wines from several counties or American Viticultural Areas.
La Follette North Coast Chardonnay 2014
An inviting bouquet of vanilla bean, biscuit and lemon zest. A creamy entry that bursts into citrus and nectarine flavors mid-palate. The structure of the wine builds to a fine tension between minerality and acidity. Elegant and energetic, our North Coast Chardonnay is a harmonious blend of tank and barrel fermentations; decidedly coastal in structure.
