Winemaker Notes

Eastside is Aubert's only Russian River AVA Chardonnay. Located on a hill overlooking the expanses of the Russian River Valley, these vines grow on the rockiest of sites; a distinguishing aspect of its terroir. The rare Chardonnay clonal selection is matched to this low vigor site, equating to a remarkably powerful, yet delicately elegant wine.

The 2015 Eastside Chardonnay is uncanny in its ability to represent the stony soils of its origin. This wine is like gravel candy to the Chardonnay lover’s sweet tooth. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Strong aromas of pungent minerals and dried stone fruit grab your attention. Flavors expand to lime zest, herb oils and green apple cider. The combination of minerality and acidity makes this long and lip-smacking. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Eastside Vineyard exudes butterscotch, allspice, baked pears and peach preserves with tantalizing honeycomb, salted caramel and popcorn hints. This rich, full-bodied powerhouse fills the palate with decadent, spicy stone fruit, marked by a refreshing line of acid and finishing with lingering wet pebble and savory hints.

Great aromas of stone, gun powder and sliced apple. Wow. Full body, dense and layered. Wonderful phenolic texture. Montrachet-like. Drink in 2020 but already superb.

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
