Lioco Chardonnay, Sonoma County - 2022

Item # 18154 750mL

Lioco has created this Chardonnay from a blend of different sources, with all fruit grown in dried creek beds throughout the Russian River. The wine is left in contact with the lees for six months, in large neutral oak casks, and it is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fresh citrus notes play against a creamy mouthfeel.

Staff Pick Notes

Lioco is owned and operated by husband and wife team: Matt and Sara Licklider. Started in 2005 with the intention to make wines that capture individuality, rather than over-blown, market-driven wines that were trending at the time. This bottle is their entry Chardonnay composed of grapes selected and harvested across several complementary vineyards in Sonoma County. Cool nights plus a foggy atmosphere provided grapes with wonderfully crisp acidity. Aged in stainless steel and some neutral oak, and fermented on the lees for 8 months. The results are delicious. Fresh yellow apples and asian pears on the palate. A lush texture and just enough bite to keep it interesting. Well made, and with purpose.

California

California makes more wine than any other state in the United States. Not only does the state grow a variety of noble grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, there are also plantings of lesser-known varieties such as Nebbiolo, Roussanne and Mourvèdre to name just a few.

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world.
