Sterling Vineyards Made with Organic Grapes is the most recent addition to the Sterling Vineyards collection. These wines reflect their larger commitment to environmentally friendly wine production, as well as a belief that what is best for the earth is also best for wine quality. The fruit comes from small family-owned and operated organic vineyards in Mendocino County, and the phrase "Made with Organic Grapes" corresponds to a legal, certified organic category dictating that grapes be free from artificial fertilizers and synthetic chemicals. Sterling Vineyards Made with Organic Grapes wines are pure, natural expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
This Chardonnay shows a clear pale gold with aromas of green apple and stone fruit, with subtle notes of vanilla and baking spices. Flavors of Pippin apple, white peach, and nectarine are complemented by toasty, spicy notes from the judicious use of oak.
