    Winemaker Notes

    This bright, refreshing wine offers enticing aromas of butterscotch, pear and citrus woven with a hint of orange blossom. Flavors of crisp white peach, Gravenstein apple and subtle oak complement the lush vanilla-cream palate, while a wet stone minerality and bright acidity lifts the structure for a brilliant finish.

    DeLoach Vineyards, California
    Image of winery

    DeLoach Vineyards has been a pioneering producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in

    Sonoma’s Russian River Valley since 1975. DeLoach seeks to produce exceptional wines that

    spotlight the singular personality of the Russian River Valley, with its rare and bountiful

    convergence of the sea, the soil and the stars. The Boisset family of Burgundy has stewarded

    winegrowing and winemaking at DeLoach since 2003, bringing the techniques and approaches of

    Burgundy to winemaking in the Russian River Valley, which they believed to be California’s most

    expressive terroir for cultivating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Under Boisset, DeLoach has grown

    its small-lot vineyard designate wine program, become a certified organic and Biodynamic estate

    vineyard, and implemented traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques such as open-top wood

    fermentors, native yeast fermentations, and hand punch-downs. Wine & Spirits magazine has named

    DeLoach Vineyards a Top 100 Winery twelve times. 

    California

    View all wine

    Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

    Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it’s grown and how it’s made. In Burgundy, Chardonnay produces some of the finest white wines in the world, typically tending towards minimal intervention in the winery and at its best resulting in remarkable longevity. This grape is popular throughout the world, but perhaps its second most important home is in California, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia, South America, South Africa, and New Zealand are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay’s flavors tend towards grapefruit, green apple, minerals, and white stone fruit, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of fig, melon, and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice (as well as texture), while malolactic fermentation can impart soft, buttery acidity.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with simple seafood, light chicken dishes, and salads. Richer Chardonnays marry well with cream or oil-based sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. These Old-World style wines have been dubbed the “New California Chardonnays,” and anyone who claims they do not like Chardonnay should give them a try.
