This Russian River Valley Chardonnay is complex and elegant, showing its cool-climate heritage with concentrated flavors and a texture with just enough bright citrus tones for balance and excitement. Slight tannins accentuate and compliment the mouthfeel, making it one of those wines that draws you in for the next sip.
It opens with warm baking spices, ripe pear and lemon aromas. It’s distinctly Chardonnay. New oak has been used sparingly to enhance the wine with subtle toasted tones, rather than dominate the aromatic profile.
Our Russian River Valley Chardonnay is grown on four different estate vineyards. The sites range from quiet rolling hills to steep and cold hillside plantings. This diverse combi- nation adds distinct elements from each site and creates a complete and complex wine with structure and grace.
