Winemaker's Notes

Our Russian River Chardonnay is born from Wood Vineyard, located on River Road, and River Vineyard, located on East Side Road. The floral, mineral, and lime aromas of the River Vineyard are complemented by the peach and apricot aromas of the Wood Vineyard.

Our winemaking philosophy remains the same since we introduced the Russian River Chardonnay in 1993: less intervention is better with chardonnay. Winemaking techniques including sur-lie aging, lees stirring, full malolactic fermentation, and the measured use of some new French oak are employed to bring you this delicious rendition from Sonoma's premier chardonnay appellation.

Our Russian River Chardonnay spotlights the floral/lime quality of the fruit aromas and accents them with toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouthfeel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.
