Porter Creek Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

There’s a lightly sweet fruity top note to the Asian pear fruit on the nose, which picks up lovely spice nuances with air. On the palate this is clear and tense, full of green apples with a hint of fig at the core, all framed with textural touches of green plum and lemon curd on the back end that leads to a clean, apple peel finish full of lovely bright acid. Clean, bright and focused, this is enjoyable, but has the promising feel of a young wine. 91 points

Very nice Russian River chardonnay. Lots of fresh citrus, with a hint of fizziness. Somewhat light, crisp with a touch of acidity.

This winery, named after one of the main tributaries to the Russian River, is run by a father and son. The vineyards are farmed organically and the winemaking practices are burgundian in style. This Chardonnay shocked us when we first tasted it. Great minerality complements notes of pear, lime, and brulée.
