The Clambake

Un-Oaked Chardonnay

Our unoaked chardonnay isn’t your typical big, buttery chardonnay. Our single-vineyard Mendocino chardonnay is picked slightly under-ripe, and aged in stainless steal tanks, resulting in an atypically light, clean, and smooth expression of California chardonnay. Letting the grapes from this amazing region speak for themselves, our winemaking techniques result in a chardonnay that is curiously delicate with notes of lemon verbena, green apple, citrus zest and crisp minerality that will make your clambake food sing a little louder…and cut through that delicious butter, too. But lest we forget, chardonnay is still king so there’s still enough richness and boy to stand up to all those potatoes and lobsters staring ‘atcha.

The Clambake

Limited Edition Rosé

For our 2015 and 2016 limited edition rosés, we’ve selected some of the very best old-vine carignan from Mendocino we ever seen. Picked in its youth and crushed ever so lightly, we have created a rosé with both delicate, flawless and acid-driven structure, but also only extracting the best juice out of the grapes for the best flavor. Refreshingly crisp, this rosé backbone is the perfect match for a seafood feast. Notes of wild strawberry, Bing cherry, candied citrus, and light florals dazzle on the palate in a wine that is light, dry, and wonderfully smooth. The flavor profile will bring out the very best in claw meat, steamers, sweet corn, and everything in between, but perfect on its own as well.
