Winemaking Notes: The Wonderland Project was founded in 2010 by wine broker and former sommelier, Matt Ahern with the help of pedigreed Sonoma grape growers. The Wonderland Project produces Sonoma County Appellation Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from organically farmed vineyards in Carneros. Winemakers rely on native yeast fermentations and minimal interventionist methods. Fermented in it's own yeast, this 2015 Chardonnay from Sonoma County is fermented in stainless steel (5% malolactic). 10% of the blend is then aged in neutral french oak for 6 months.

Tasting Notes: Pale yellow color and clear in the glass. Inviting aromas of grapefruit, pear and white peach are replicated in the flavors which add some hints of nuts, brioche and honey. An excellent food wine with discreet richness, bright acidity and appealing edginess. Reminiscent to a degree of powerful Pinot Blanc.
