Bonterra The Roost Blue Heron Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

Bonterra The Roost Blue Heron Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

94 Points - Tasting Panel. Bonterra, a trailblazer in organic and Biodynamic farming, exemplifies its commitment with the Roost Chardonnay from Mendocino County. Crafted from biodynamic grapes sourced from the ROC Silver-certified Blue Heron Vineyard, this white wine aged for 14 months in French oak barrels offers delightful notes of apple pie, lemon blossom, and nutmeg on both the nose and palate. Its crispness, derived from a balanced acid structure, leads to a lingering finish with hints of garden herbs. Bonterra's dedication to biodiversity, nurturing healthy soils, and innovative practices, such as housing honeybees in organic vineyards and using sheep for winter vineyard maintenance, embodies its mission to cultivate thoughtful wine growing inspired by the potential of nature itself.

Wine Press Ratings

94 Points - Tasting Panel

"The Roost Chardonnay, Mendocino County ($60) Made with biodynamic grapes from the ROC (Regenerative Organic Certified) Silver-certified Blue Heron Vineyard, this white aged 14 months in (25% new) French oak. Apple pie and lemon blossom dusted with nutmeg are mirrored on the nose and palate. The crispness is due to a balanced acid structure, and the lengthy finish displays garden herbs."

About the Producer

Long before organic produce filled the shelves of neighbourhood groceries, the dedicated team at Bonterra was committed to organic and Biodynamic® farming because they passionately believe that farms teeming with biodiversity—encompassing vines, insects and wildlife, and healthy soils—yield organic grapes leading to better wines. Whether supporting the health of honeybees with hive housing in its organic vineyards, trading tractors for sheep to maintain vineyards during the winter months, or giving back to the future of agriculture through educational outreach and shared knowledge, Bonterra strives to leave behind a legacy of thoughtful wine growing inspired by the potential of nature itself.
