Winemaker Notes

There are fresh fruit aromas of apple, pear, pineapple, and vanilla mixed with floral notes and slight oak in the glass. The 2016 is rich and creamy with slight citrus notes along with crisp flavors of pear, apple, tropical fruits, and nectarines. The Viognier adds a slight floral component and a rich mouth-feel. This vintage has bright acidity, nice balance, and a very long aftertaste.

Blend: 99% Chardonnay, 1% Viognier

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Chardonnay Wetzel Family Estate is scented of lemon curd, grapefruit and honeycomb with touches of lime blossom and yuzu. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of citrus flavors with a racy backbone and a zippy finish. Great value! 20,000 cases produced.?

COMMENTARY: Alexander Valley Vineyards has done an admirable job with their Chardonnay over the years. The 2016 vintage is just I had expected it to be. TASTING NOTES. This wine is ripe and juicy. Its aromas and flavors of ripe apple and melon are accentuated by its round and layered palate textures. Pair its smooth finish with grilled bone-in chicken thighs with simple sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper. (Tasted: August 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Alexander Valley Vineyards Winery Video
Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead.

The Wetzel Family Estate now grows fourteen grape varieties, on diverse sites stretching from the banks of the Russian River up onto the hillsides. Each grape variety is matched to a specific soil type and exposure. Vineyard Manager Mark Houser and Winemaker Kevin Hall work as a team to maximize fruit flavor in the vineyard and to create balanced wines that capture the grapes’ varietal characteristics. Hank Wetzel oversees the vineyard and winery operations, and his wife Linda continues to oversee administration. Now the third generation of Wetzels has joined the winery. Harry Wetzel, IV is assistant winemaker while younger brother Robert is the National Sales Manager.

Alexander Valley Vineyards produces 100,000 cases annually, 17 varietal wines and proprietary blends. Seventy-five percent of AVV’s production is red wine. Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon constitute roughly half of total production. Other varietals include Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc.
