Seascape Vineyard

Seascape Vineyard sits on a panoramic site on a scenic ridge-top west of Occidental, California in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyard abuts an old redwood grove and faces cascading ridges to Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The well-known Coastlands Vineyard also borders the property. With no ridge between the ocean and the vineyard, Seascape is extremely cold — so cold that Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is often picked in November. The vineyard is cropped to about two tons per acre to ensure thorough ripening. Though difficult to farm, Seascape's grapes offer the great reward of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir brimming with intensity, terroir and structure.

Wines From This Vineyard

2017 Hartford Court Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay

96+ POINTS

"The 2017 Chardonnay Seascape Vineyard is a little closed at this youthful stage, revealing suggestions of lime cordial, lemon meringue pie, orange blossoms, and acacia honey with wafts of oyster shell and green tea.  Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with a lovely satiny texture and a lively line cutting through the intense flavors, finishing long and minerally." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, February 2020

2017 Hartford Court Seascape Vineyard Pinot Noir

95 POINTS

"Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2017 Pinot Noir Seascape Vineyard gives up pronounced notes of warm cranberries, Bing cherries, and raspberry coulis with hints of lilacs, underbrush, and fungi.  Medium-bodied, the palate is charged with red berries and earthy sparks, framed by silken-textured tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and mineral-laced" - Lisa Perrott-Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, February 2020

2014 Hartford Court Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay

91-93 Points

"­The 2014 Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay is from one of the coldest vineyards in all of Northern California. On a ridgetop close to the town of Occidental, facing Bodega Bay in the Pacific Ocean, it is often the last to ripen – and sometimes as late as late October or November. A deep golden color, exotic tropical fruits, crushed rocks, and an almost saltiness characterize this rather nutty and strikingly Meursault-like Chardonnay that will be somewhat controversial compared to the more classic aromas and flavors of the other five offerings, but it is still a brilliant, somewhat idiosyncratic Chardonnay in the lineup of the Hartford Court wines."Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, October, 2015
