Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay Russian River Valley Reserve 2008
Our Reserve Chardonnay is pressed whole-cluster and then fermented entirely in French oak barrels to achieve a silky, seductive texture. The 2008 vintage saw significantly lighter crop yields after a spring frost prevented the young berries from setting normally. The upside of this is that the fruit that developed was much more concentrated and aromatic. Our Reserve Chardonnay has a dazzling perfume of pears, peaches and honeysuckle and the distinct impression of pineapple upside-down cake, with its creamy vanilla and toasted oak notes. Layers of tangerine, mineral tones and sweet spices also reveal themselves in the finish.
