Mossback 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The wine style is based on the French Chablis model in that the wine is tank fermented to retain acidity which develops a high fruit, leaner style wine that relies solely on the quality of the fruit character rather than the quality of the barrels.

I tried the 2005 Mossback as a reccomendation from the guys at Colonial Wine and Spirits in Little Rock. I was looking for a good unoaked Chardonnay because I had enjoyed some New Zealand varieties in the past and my standby was no longer in stock. One of the sommeliers had a bottle that had been open for almost an hour and the crisp apple notes had developed quite nicely when I tasted it. The acidity is not overbearing, but adds a nice bright fruity flavor to the wine. At home I opened a bottle and tried it with dinner and from start to finish its one of the better unoaked Chardonnays I've tried. It paired quite well with the pork and mushroom roast because of the fruit flavors.

This small-production Chardonnay from the former owner of R.H. Phillips showcases what Russian River Chardonnay is all about: ripe, full-flavored fruit with crisp acidity that remains intact even with barrel aging.

Crisp, elegant, poached pear, crushed rock, and white currant notes characterize this Chardonnay, which appears to have more in common with a low level French Chablis than a California Chardonnay. It should be consumed over the next several years.
