Interesting portrayal of this famous variety. Typical Chardonnay nose with hints of oak and vanilla. Strikingly sweet taste with hints of tropical fruit and crispiness similar to that of a pinot grio. Very easy drinking wine the reminds me of sitting outside in the sun in summertime.

Zesty acidity keeps the flavors fresh and lively, with pretty citrus, tangerine, pippin apple and creamy oak. Turns complex, and is a wonderful value at this price. New from Gallo. Drink now through 2005.

Perfumed floral and fruity aromas lead to a complex core of earthy pear, citrus and grapey flavors. Drink now.

The 2009 Chardonnay also pushes its wood component well to the background, emphasizing white peach, honeysuckle and white citrus characteristics offered in a crisp, clean, medium-bodied style. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.

Frei Brothers Reserve wines possess a fruit-forward character with intense aromas and flavors that reflect the land and the climate that created the grapes. The 2000 Chardonnay is a medium-bodied wine with a silky mouthfeel and complex varietal characters of pear, peach and apple balanced with a subtle overlay of oak.

Winemaker's Notes:

At Frei Brothers Winery, we craft wines in a gentle, traditional style enhanced by the use of modern techniques to produce a wine that is both varietally accurate and reflective of the terroir of the Russian River Valley. Our Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed to eliminate bitterness and maximize fresh fruit characters. The wine completed malolactic fermentation, which resulted in a lush texture and deep, layered flavors that express the terroir of the Russian River Valley.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2009 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is soft and complex. It reflects its cool climate source with flavors of green apple, orange zest, and apple pie, which are complemented by buttery and toasty notes. With nutty and rich flavors, the wine finishes with a silky, full mouthfeel.
