Winemaker Notes

Fresh Chardonnay fruit flavors spring from the glass, with ripe yellow nectarine and pear notes without the heavy influence of malolactic fermentation or oak. There is an appealing purity on the palate, with a clean, bright finish and surprising concentration. Lovely on its own, or pair with grilled herb-marinated fish or chicken paillard.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This medium-bodied wine is graceful and well balanced, offering crisp lemon and green-apple flavors on a rather lean, tangy texture. It is nuanced and complex, and has a nice tension from tantalizing acidity.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 Saracina Unoaked Chardonnay is lively and authentic. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits dried earth, forest floor, chalk, and tart apple. Enjoy it steamed Dungeness crab. (Tasted: December 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Well-structured, with a savory snap to the fresh-cut green apple, Asian pear and preserved lemon flavors, ending with hints of honeysuckle on the crisp, savory finish. Drink now through 2023.
JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck
utstanding notes of pear, citrus, and orchard fruits as well as a kiss of minerality emerge from the 2019 Chardonnay Unoaked, which comes all from estate fruit in Mendocino and was brought up all in tank. Drink this medium-bodied, balanced, charming white over the coming year or two. It’s another notable value.

Saracina Vineyards Saracina Vineyards - Mendocino County Winery Image

Saracina Vineyards is a 400-acre winery estate located in Mendocino County. The winery and vineyards are Certified California Sustainable (“CSWA”) and home to a tasting room, a 140-year-old olive grove, vegetable gardens, beehives, alpacas, and all manner of bird and wild animal life.

Saracina’s location in Hopland is close to the southern border of Mendocino County, along the head waters of the Russian River. This area is a 90-minute drive north of San Francisco, and 30 miles north of the town of Healdsburg, in northern Sonoma County.

Winemaker Alex MacGregor joined John Fetzer, the original founder of Saracina Vineyards, in 2002, and has been making Saracina’s wines ever since. As a result of Alex’s commitment to quality, strong ties to the community, and long-standing grower relationships, Saracina Vineyards has been regarded as one of the most consistent wine producers in Mendocino County. And in 2018, Marc D. Taub took on stewardship of the Saracina Estate & Vineyards, upholding the spirit of family legacy that has defined this iconic Mendocino winery since inception.

The handcrafted, limited-production Saracina Vineyards wines reflect a conscious sense of this beautiful place in Mendocino County.

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
