  • About This Wine
  • Technical Details

The 2016 Tidal Break Chardonnay is our newest offering.  Sourced from a remote vineyard along the true Sonoma Coast, Tidal Break is Copain’s first foray to achieve elegant, expressive Chardonnay from this famed region.  Distinct aromas of baked Bosc pear and green apple skin are followed by subtle hints of stone fruits and dried Meyer lemon peel. Flavors of yellow plum and dried apricots are carried through by precise acidity with a long, mineral-driven finish.  Fermented and aged completely in neutral French oak barrels, this Chardonnay displays the freshness and purity of its varietal characteristics.  A brief amount of foot treading and skin contact before fermentation, along with barrel aging sur lie without lees stirring, adds to the textural and flavor complexities of this wine.
