Description

Description

A true reflection of the winery’s Grace Benoist Ranch estate vineyard, this wine is a blend of the best blocks on the Ranch, tucked away in the far northwest corner of the Carneros appellation. Unlike most Carneros vineyards, which are largely uplifted bay bottoms with soils composed of clay, the soils on Grace Benoist Ranch are variations of volcanic origin. Combining these well-drained, rocky upland soils with the extreme western location closer to San Pablo Bay, make this cooler site an ideal place to grow Burgundian varieties.

    “A fresh and zesty chardonnay with sliced cooked-apple, lemon and light vanilla character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a creamy and bright finish. Hints of yogurt and apple pie at the end with energetic acidity. Drink now.” - James Suckling, August 2021

    “The 2019 Chardonnay Grace Benoist Ranch is a blend taken from five blocks on the ranch, all on lighter soils that confer elegance and freshness. Citrus peel, mint and white flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that give this expressive Chardonnay so much appeal.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021

    Vinous

    “The 2019 Chardonnay Heirloom Grace Benoist Ranch is a selection of Hanzell Cline. Apricot, tangerine peel, spice and a kick of butter all build in the glass. In this range, the Heirloom stands out for its distinctly phenolic, structured feel. A wine of power and textural intensity. Cobbly soils yield tiny berries, and that intensity comes through nicely.” - Antonio Galloni, March 2021

Jon Priest - Winemaker

For more than a decade Jon has fashioned Etude wines with a simple creed. Inspired winegrowing diminishes the need for a winemaker to intervene in the cellar. Whether sourcing from the estate Grace Benoist Ranch in Sonoma's Los Carneros, or vineyards like Fiddlestix and North Canyon in famed growing regions of California's Central Coast, his focus is on coaxing the very best from the vineyard. It shows in every glass of Etude.
