Nickel and Nickel Chardonnay Medina Vineyard Russian River Valley 2014

External Review:

Floral and muscat aromas are inherent in this wine, giving it a beautiful bouquet. Apple, peach and lemon flavors blend with the floral attributes, bringing out a lovely layering effect. This wine strikes a nice balance between fruit, acid and oak.

Winemaker Notes - Medina Vineyard is located in the Green Valley Appellation of the Russian River Valley. Planted in 1969, it rests on a gentle, rolling slope with a western exposure that offers good sunlight throughout the day. The 2008 Medina Chardonnay yields a tropical quality of banana and passion fruit. Hints of Muscat, minerals and lemon evolve on the natural crisp acidity that derives from the area.

Medina Vineyard is located in the Green Valley Appellation of the Russian River Valley. Planted in 1969, it rests on a gentle, rolling slope with a western exposure that offers good sunlight throughout the day. Aged 9 months in French oak barrels it shows abundant fruit flavors of a tropical quality of banana and passion fruit. This wine strikes a nice balance between fruit, acid and oak creating a wine with an opulent middle palate that carries the fruit into a long, persistent finish.
