Winemaker's Notes

Fresh, vibrant layers of Meyer lemon, ripe pear, tropical fruit, mineral and floral character unfold in our 2006 Orogeny Chardonnay. The crisp, balanced acidity and richly textured palate create the perfect framework for the lush fruit flavors. Creamy caramel apple nuances from barrel aging lace the aromas and flavors, then gently linger on the finish. This fruit-intense Chardonnay comes from the renowned Green Valley subappellation of Sonoma's Russian River Valley. Enjoy this wine with appetizers or rich seafood entrées, including grilled sea bass or halibut, crab cakes with garlic aioli and lobster with ginger curry drawn butter.

A captivating Chard that shows impeccable balance, and the price is very good for this level of quality. The fruit is brilliantly ripe in green apple, kiwi, Asian pear and lime flavors, with a deft touch of smoky oak. A firm minerality undergirds the structure. - Wine Enthusiast
