Bogle Vineyard California Chardonnay 2019

White Wine from USA - California
A gloriously indulgent example of ‘proper’ old-school California chardonnay. The brown sugar, nutmeg and vanilla notes that come from its 50% new American oak were noticeable, but the 50% of tank-fermented wine ensures there’s freshness as well as structure on the palate. A 2021 Wine Champion.

Bogle

In the mid-1960s the Bogles took their century-old family heritage in farming in a new direction and planted their first 20 acres of vines along the banks of the Sacramento River at Clarksburg in California. Thanks to this effort by Warren and Chris Bogle the family was set on a path that has seen them grow in to one of the state’s most noted wineries.

Today, those 20 acres have become more than 1,500 acres and the Bogles are just as closely involved as ever.

Currently the 6th generation of the family are running things in the shape of Ryan and Warren Bogle and Jody Bogle Van de Pol, with Warren, the grandson of the vineyard’s founder, taking care of viticulture across the numerous vineyards they own near their home at Clarksburg as well as others around the state, and reaching as far south as San Luis Obispo halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. All are sustainably farmed. Winemaking is overseen by someone who has his own long history with the Bogles, Eric Aafedt, who has been with them since 1994.

California Vintage 2019

2019 was, notwithstanding some terrible fires, a very good one.A long warm summer made up for wet weather in the spring and the growing season was long. Harvesting was carried out without the necessity to rush anything, and most fruit was safely gathered in when wildfires broke out late in October. Some wineries were devastated by the flames but most came away unscathed and with little smoke taint affecting the wines. White varieties show excellent potential, as does pinot noir, but most reds show very well in a very good vintage.

The Scotsman

Part oak / part stainless steel, this big vanilla and buttery creamy chardonnay is in a style which was stereotypical California, before the fruit got dialled down.
