2020 Sebastiani North Coast Chardonnay

91 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A creamy and generous Californian Chardonnay. These days this classic wine is sourced more broadly in the North Coast region, and it now appears under a new and improved label as well. The effect is exactly the same: Sebastiani's proper hand-harvesting and partial barrel fermentation help to enrich and round out a beautiful creamy, generous style. It's hard to imagine how they make such good stuff and ship it over here for this price!

Its Origins

Sebastiani is a Sonoma producer with a proud history and, in modern times, a stunning quality-for-value offering across the globe. After immigrating from Tuscany in 1895, Samuele Sebastiani laboured in the Sonoma hills making cobblestones for San Francisco streets. Here he saved the money - and no doubt surveyed the land - for property to make wine for the city’s restaurants. Over the decades Samuele’s son August became one of America’s leading winemakers of his time. August’s children too were successful - so much so that a massive Central valley operation was built up and sold off to refocus on the Sebastiani home label, and two out of three siblings began their own wineries. In 2008 Sebastiani was acquired by the large Foley stable of companies, at which time the already high quality culture was increased steeply, with a reduction in yields on top of a heavy investment in new expertise, oak and technology resulting in both Sonoma and single vineyard wines of almost incomparable quality for the price.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2017 vintage)

"It is delightfully fragrant on the nose showing golden peach, rockmelon, vanilla custard and toasted hazelnut characters. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent mid palate weight and rich texture, finishing persistent and creamy. A lovely generous style. At its best: now to 2020."
