Giaconda Estate Chardonnay 2022

This wine is a captivating blend of deep complexity and remarkable freshness. The 2022 vintage, marked by one of the latest harvests for the maker, benefited from a cool season and extended hang time, creating a unique charm. The aroma is compelling, featuring jasmine, citrus blossom, grapefruit, nectarine, peach custard, cashew, and buttered toast. It enters seamlessly, gliding across a richly detailed, textural, and luxurious palate, ending with a touch of bright quince spice. The fine acidity adds crystal clarity and a refreshing finish.

Founded by Rick Kinzbrunner, Giaconda vineyard originated from Kinzbrunner's transition from mechanical engineering to a profound interest in wine during the early 1970s. Over the next decade, Kinzbrunner immersed himself in the wine industry, embarking on travels and pursuing his passion. Following a brief period in New Zealand, he furthered his knowledge at Davis University in California and gained experience at renowned wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, including Stag's Leap, Simi, and Matanzas Creek. Additionally, he worked in Europe for the Moueix group, co-owners of the esteemed Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux.
