Concannon Chardonnay, Livermore Valley, 2008
Our conservancy wines help protect California vineyard land from urban development. Growers of these wines have placed their land into a trust that preserves against development forever. Established 1883 in the Livermore Valley. Roots. Rocks. Intrigue. My Great-Grandfather, James Concannon began handcrafting outstanding wines in 1883. Chardonnay is a delicate grape in that it picks up on the flavors of the soil and I think there is a hint of minerality from the 600-foot-deep bed of gravelly soil our estate Livermore Valley vineyard sits atop. By placing vineyards into conservancy it ensures wines will continue to be crafted for future generations. We believe preservation of vineyard and agricultural lands protects our quality of life. Our Conservancy Chardonnay shows more fruit flavors with an accent of oak making it food friendly. Try it with herbed pork loin or pasta with your favorite cream sauce. Enjoy a glass and be part of the legacy! - John Cancannon. 13.5% alc by vol.
