Winemaker's Notes

De Loach Vineyards 1998 Russian River Valley Chardonnay displays distinctive characteristics true to the appellation; rich, ripe fruit and firm acidity. Its concentrated aromas of pear, apple and vanilla are complemented nicely by toasty oak components. This elegant wine is full-bodied with a smooth, long-lasting finish. This wine is a wonderful match with seafood. We recommend pairing it with lobster, monkfish or shrimp scampi. Our favorite match is with seared scallops on a bed of truffled mashed potatoes.

Critical Acclaim

"Treat yourself to one of the best buys in California Chardonnay with this exceptional Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. This region is famous for its Chardonnay for good reason. The climate and soils allow the wines to achieve depth and dimension, while retaining elegance and brightness. The 1998 De Loach Russian River Chardonnay is creamy on the palate but doesn't weigh heavy. Fresh apple, baked pear and a dash of oak combine for a rich and satisfying Chardonnay. This is a fun, food friendly wine that is sure to please."
