Item Description

"Pale yellow. Pungent, spice-accented aromas of orange pith and yellow apple, with a touch of honey adding depth. Juicy, palate-coating orchard fruit flavors are enlivened by tangy acidity and a chalky nuance. Clean and juicy on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity."

" A selection of complementary sonoma county vineyards compose this wine. while each site is distinct, they share a common commitment to sustainable horticulture and strident farming. our intention for this wine is to express, as transparently as possible, the unique character of this region. warm days and cool nights, tempered by consistent oceanic fog, yield full and rich chardonnays balanced by brisk acidity." ~ Winery notes

Lioco

View all from Lioco
LiocoLIOCO is the result of a years-long conversation between Matt Licklider (a seasoned wine import specialist) and Kevin O'Connor (former wine director at Spago-Beverly Hills) about whether California could produce a true "wine of origin." Inspired by traditional European winegrowing practices, they sought out vineyard sites with tougher soil, older vines, and some stress-producing aspect (altitude, extreme temperature, poor soil, etc). Under winemaker John Raytek of Ceritas, the grapes are shepherded from bud to bottle in the least intrusive way possible producing some of the most focused, balanced Chardonnay and Pinot Noir coming from such storied vineyards as Hirsch, Demuth, and Hanzell.
