Sean Minor Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016
This Central Coast Chardonnay is a golden straw color and displays aromas of apricot, apple, and honeydew with subtle notes of butter. On the entry, tropical fruit notes with green apple flavors are framed by nice acidity which integrates well with the medium body mouth feel. The green apple and pear finish with juicy acidity which provides a lengthy finish. -
Sean Minor Winery was founded to celebrate the things in life we prize most: delicious, approachable wines, expressive terroir-driven flavors, great value for the price… and family! Every once in a while we discover a brand that is a complete no-brainer, and Sean Minor certainly falls into that category. All of the varietals offer tremendous quality and balance at incredibly fair prices. Sean Minor has been in the wine business for 20+ years. He got his start at Beaulieu Vineyards, and then moved to Oregon where he ran King Estate for several years before moving on to Benton-Lane. He returned to California to oversee Renwood Winery and then ultimately started his own label in 2005. As Sean states, "My winemaking philosophy is to offer wines that exude quality and truly represent the appellation from which they’re produced, yet are affordable for everyday enjoyment."
Wine EnthusiastThis is an impressive, well-priced wine to stock up on. Golden waves of toasted oak complement a backdrop of honeysuckle and apple blossom, while spicy nutmeg seasons well-honed notions of apple and pear.
