To guarantee the best possible fruit from both sites, Foley?s viticulture and winemaking teams have developed a unique micro-farming program. This complex process involves the mapping of soils and topography down to the smallest increment using soil pits and aerial photography. A total of 500 acres are under wine, with an emphasis on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
This 2016 Rancho Santa Rosa Chardonnay opens with fresh and clean aromatics of citrus, jasmine, wet slate and a touch of minerality. The palate has bright, crisp acidity with notes of lemon curd, lime zest and tangerine which give way to toasted hazelnut on the long finish. The full-bodied mouthfeel and impressive balance make it an excellent pairing with a creamy fettuccini with grilled chicken and fresh herbs.
