Winemaker Notes

While most of the Chardonnay from these vineyards may often be used in single vineyard designates, we also take special pride in crafting this blend. This is an example of how individual vineyard nuances express themselves with one another, creating a more complex and intriguing wine. Though 100% barrel fermented in French oak, the new oak component was held to 30% and ML fermentation was encouraged in only 50% of the barrels. The result is a very crisp, fruit-focused offering, not dominated by excessive oak, buttery ML or high alcohol.

Fresh aromas of Gravenstein apple blossoms, vanilla bean and Asian pear. Wonderfully complex and layered with rich tropical fruit flavors, green apple and pear accented with citrus notes. Impressive balance, length and refreshing, mouth-watering acidity. Truly delicious, and crafted to be an ideal accompaniment to a wide array of moderately spiced foods.

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.
