Offers up wonderful aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, vanilla and cr me br l e. On the palate, there's a rich, creamy texture from sur lie aging that's balanced with surprising acidity that enables the wine to pair very well with pork, chicken, fish and salads; but we're confident you'll also enjoy our Russian River Chardonnay by itself.

Delicate honeycrisp apple and melon rind flavors cool this wine down, while mild vanillin scents of oak and a touch of heat warm it up. The cool fruit wins out in the finish. A light-boded wine for grilled sea bass.

WS 87 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Combines ripe tropical fruit, with hints of green pineapple and touches of citrus. Clean, pure, moderately ripe and complex. Winemakers Notes - The French oak aging on our 2009 Russian River Chardonnay, offers up wonderful aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, vanilla and crème brûlée. On the palate, there's a rich, creamy texture from sur lie aging that's balanced with surprising acidity that enables the wine to pair very well with pork, chicken, fish and salads; but we're confident you'll also enjoy our Russian River Chardonnay by itself.

Full-bodied, offering a solid core of ripe pear and apple flavors, with a touch of hazelnut on the finish. Drink now.


Winemaker's Notes:

To obtain a balanced, food-friendly Chardonnay, we source our fruit from the cooler areas of the Russian River Valley – the majority of our Chardonnay comes from Dutton Ranch. The cooling, marine-layer influences enable our fruit to be picked with a high level of acidity, resulting in a bright, fresh and food-friendly wine.
