Principal Grape

This 2017 Californian Chardonnay from De Loach’s Heritage range is classy and restrained like few US chardonnays at this price point. Boasting enticing aromas of orange blossom and honeydew melon with herbaceous notes, on the palate it is very well balanced. Tropical flavours of pineapple and mango are complemented by a hint of vanilla as well as bright acidity and a soft, long finish.

    CHARDONNAY - Chardonnay is the world’s most famous white-wine grape and is widely planted across the world. Chardonnay wines offer complex aromas, often due to the use of oak during production, and they can be buttery with notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of sweet spices. A base of apple and citrus is supplemented by tropical flavours such as banana, melon, pineapple and guava in many examples, and by stone-fruits such peach, nectarine and apricot in others.

  • Vineyard

    DE LOACH winery and vineyards were originally owned and run by the De Loach family, with Cecil De Loach as winemaker. In 2003, the family run Burgundian estate Jean-Claude Boisset purchased De Loach and brought the focus back to the estate's original high quality winemaking philosophy, with specific emphasis on small lot winemaking. The winery's 17-acre estate vineyard has been completely restored and converted to organic and Biodynamic® viticulture, a tradition upheld by many foremost Burgundian vineyards. The De Loach estate vineyards are certified organic by CCOF.

  • Region

    CALIFORNIA, USA - California is the USA’s largest wine region, globally renowned for producing bold and fruity wines. Diverse climate and topography presents a vast choice of terroir across three principal sub-regions: North Coast (containing the iconic Nappa and Sonoma Valleys), Central Coast and Inland Valleys. The cooler regions closer to the coast suit Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while the hotter inland areas produce very fine Cabernet Sauvignon. A wide range of traditional European vines also thrive alongside the famous Zinfandel.
