This Chardonnay was crafted by former-Sommelier Matt Ahern with fruit from some of Sonoma's best vineyards. Matt's goal was to create a balanced, wine with some nerve, to pair with food and this wine fills that void very well. Two thirds of the wine spent 7 months in 50% new French oak and one third of the wine was stainless steel and the resulting wine is pure, precise, and focused with furtive opulence and complexity that will surprise you. This wine graces the wine lists at many of the country's best restaurants, and that makes it a tremendous value to purchase for your at-home needs and a killer wine for entertaining guests. 2,872 cases produced.
Former-Sommelier Matt Ahern is making affordable, approachable wines under his Wonderland Project label.
The Wonderland Project was founded by former-Sommelier Matt Ahern after spending years selling wine to elite restaurants. Through his experience, he became aware of a common missing component on wine lists: a high quality wine made from high quality fruit, with enough refinement for the most discerning palette at an accessible cost. When he couldn't find the wine described, he decided to make it himself.More from this winery

Didn't love for a Chardonnay. I tend to like more buttery and full-bodied Chardonnays.
Not bad for a Chardonnay!
