Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Russian River Chardonnay opens with vibrant scents of lemon meringue, lime oil, floral jasmine and tuberose. As the Chardonnay sits and warms, it takes on a more tropical tone with pineapple and mango notes. Bright acidity on the palate is balanced with cream soda and candied lemon rind. The creaminess extends through the finish ending with a nice, complementary note of toasted baguette.

Tasting Panel

The nose opens with the cheerful scents of lemon meringue, lime oil, floral jasmine, and tuberose. As the 100% Chardonnay wine, aged for eight months in French oak, rests in the glass, it transitions into a more tropical expression with pineapple and mango notes. This white draws you in with its intensely sensual aromas of lemon or lime tart, jasmine, and chamomile. Mouth-filling flavors then enter the light as this Chard shines with notes of pineapple upside-down cake, toffee, pear, and Rainier cherries. The beautiful acidity balances it all out: This is the best yet for Gehricke.

"Growing up in Sonoma, we spent a lot of time exploring the local countryside: finding our way through neighboring vineyards owned by old friends and family. I remember the excitement of discovery and freedom while, as a young boy, I thoroughly studied our small town and its outskirts. I remember old dusty roads that led to forgotten vineyards and properties...Gehricke is a tribute to one such road.” - August Sebastiani, Proprietor

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

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.
