Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay Russian River Valley the Cutrer 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is long and flavorful with creamy richness that leads to a nice, crisp finish. Aromas of pear, baked apple and lemon blossom are accented with honey, brown sugar and lavender. Flavors of green apple, pear and buttered toast are layered with caramel and oak spice.

  When you think of Sonoma Cutrer Vineyards, think of Chardonnay. Not just because they make award-winning Chardonnay, year after year, but because it’s a part of who they are. Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards was founded as solely a vineyard in 1973, but in 1981 they took the first step to making themselves truly famous: they built a winery. Not just any winery - founder Brice Cutrer Jones met with many knowledgeable winemakers of the time and came to a conclusion: the winery should focus ONLY on Chardonnay. This allowed the winemaker, Bill Bonetti, to focus all of his attention to perfecting one thing, boosting the quality of its wine dramatically. It wasn’t until 1992 that the winery acquired Pinot Noir cuttings and started branching out, still only with a total of two wines. Today, Michael Schroeter, current winemaking director of Sonoma Cutrer, continues to craft award-winning wines. Read less

Intense aromas of ripe apple are dotted with cinnamon and clove, as hazelnuts bathed in cream join fragrant notes of acacia blossoms. In the mouth, the wine is dense and concentrated, while simultaneously offering a softer, sensual side in balance. Flavors of baked apple appear alongside glazed pineapple and fresh tangerine, as a hint of clove entertains the taste buds. With its perfect backbone of acidity, the wine is fresh, alive and begging to be enjoyed again and again.

This is a medium-bodied Chardonnay with a wonderful acidic backbone. On the nose there are aromas of jasmine and rose petal, followed by notes of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and a touch of pear. With offerings of grapefruit, citrus, lemon, pear and kumquat, there is also a bit of herbaceousness and leads into a mineral finish with hints of apple, lime and strawberry.
