Nickel & Nickel Chardonnay Russian River Valley Medina Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The aromas are beautiful from the Searby Chardonnay, wine floral and citrus perfumes emanating from the glass. The Muscat and passion fruit flavors are mixed with notes of apple and lemon that linger on the palate. The wine's natural crisp acidity is quite refreshing with the opulent fruit, and the palate is enhanced by rich, French oak, which melds with the fruit flavors to achieve a long, lingering finish.

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.

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.
