Winemaker Notes

Defined by the idea of movement, Migration is dedicated to exploring Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from thefinest cool-climate winegrowing regions to create wines that highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccablybalanced oak. To craft our flagship Chardonnay, this exploration took us to California's Russian River Valley,where layers of ocean fog cool the vines that grow in the region's famous Goldridge sandy loam soils.Reflecting this world-class terroir, this vibrant and sophisticated Chardonnay combines white floweraromatics with enticing lemon custard and stone fruit flavors.

Reflecting the vibrant character and cool-climate structure of an ideal winegrowing season in the RussianRiver Valley, this bright and elegantly balanced wine displays enticing white flower, Meyer lemon, white figand almond blossom aromatics, alongside a subtle oak-inspired note of pie crust. Focused flavors of Anjoupear, green apple and lemon custard lead to a broad, lush mid-palate, with refreshing acidity adding furtherlength and intensity.

Wine Spectator
Full-bodied and intense, this is a touch raw in texture, with ripe pear, spice, apple and white peach flavors. Slightly pithy on the finish. Needs time. Drink now through 2016. 5,621 cases made.

Since our inaugural 2001 vintage of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Migration has developed a refined and compelling style that balances vibrancy and finesse. In the years since, Migration has taken wing beyond our Anderson Valley origins as we have explored Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California’s finest cool-climate appellations, most notably the legendary Sonoma Coast. Today, Migration works with a handful of acclaimed growers to produce a small portfolio of sought-after Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, including our flagship Sonoma Coast wines, and our coveted vineyard-designates. These sophisticated, Burgundian-varietal wines highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and balanced oak influence.

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.
