Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay Russian River Valley Director's Cut 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Chardonnay reflects the distinctive personality of Monterey vineyards, which give rise to juicy apple, guava and melon flavors. Whole-cluster pressing and a combination of barrel and stainless steel fermentation ensures that the creamy texture and caramelized sugar finish is balanced by a crisp acidity.

The colour is golden sunshine with aromas of tropical fruit mingling with pears. On the palate cantaloupe, crisp apple, and oak with a subtlehint of vanilla and creme brulee on the finish.

Francis Coppola Chardonnay has light, crisp, exotic tropical citrus flavors and a smooth, delicate finish. Because our Chardonnay is unoaked, you get lovely layers of pure, bright fruit and a silky texture that makes it extremely versatile with a variety of cuisines.

Using only Russian River Valley fruit, this Chardonnay offers nice ripe flavors of green apple, honeysuckle and citrus followed by a bit of spice and a touch of vanilla on the long finish.
