Super Chill offers “wonderful balance for this Occidental Area of the Sonoma Coast. Ripe and fresh dark fruit, forest flowers, intense cherry with hints of spice are layered into a very full-bodied rich wine fermented in puncheon barrels from the finest French oak and some micro-open top fermenters. This wine is very fine tannins and acidity, perfect integration for cellaring for 10+ years, but it’s drinking like a champion right now too. It’s a rock star.” This newest release comes from West Sonoma Coast’s Freestone-Occidental. It is a blend of 50% Pommard and 50% Clone 777. It was aged with French oak from Vosges Forest with a mix of Demptos and Taransaud barrels, an unusual selection for Pinot Noir but it’s from coopers and forest sites that Jayson has been working with for decades. The wood from Vosges is very blonde (white) in color and tight grained.
Summer Dreams is the newest wine project by Jayson Woodbridge, of Hundred Acre. You might remember years ago when Jayson produced a white wine which had gold specks in the wine. This is the reincarnation of the brand, minus the gold specks. For this debut, it is a collection of wines from unique micro-vineyards across western Sonoma Coast. Each wine is from hillside vineyard sites chosen for their generous slope ranging from 900 – 1900 feet above sea level and unique sequences of Goldridge soil. Goldridge soils are rare, fine-grained sandy loam known for excellent drainage, and a characteristically light and fluffy texture. These soils give the wine texture, dimension, acidity, and length that allows the wines of this area to compete with the very best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir around the world.
