Migration Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Defined by the idea of movement, Migration is dedicated to exploring Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions to create wines that highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccably balanced oak. To craft our flagship Chardonnay, this exploration took us to California’s Russian River Valley, where layers of ocean fog cool the vines that grow in the region’s famous Goldridge sandy loam soils. Reflecting this world-class terroir, this vibrant and sophisticated Chardonnay combines white flower aromatics with enticing lemon custard and stone fruit flavors.

Full-bodied and intense, this is a touch raw in texture, with ripe pear, spice, apple and white peach flavors. Slightly pithy on the finish.

Tasting Notes:

Reflecting the vibrant character and cool-climate structure of an ideal winegrowing season in the Russian River Valley, this bright and elegantly balanced wine displays enticing white flower, Meyer lemon, white fig and almond blossom aromatics, alongside a subtle oak-inspired note of pie crust. Focused flavors of Anjou pear, green apple and lemon custard lead to a broad, lush mid-palate, with refreshing acidity adding further length and intensity.
