    Winemaker Notes

    This Chardonnay opens with juicy aromas of white peach and golden apple layered with delicate orange blossoms. This wine is all fruit, with a luscious weight in the mouth that carries flavors of mandarin oranges, candied lemon rind, and honey. The lovely finish lingers with clean, summery aromas of citrus blossom and fresh lemons.

    The Ministers often enjoy a glass of this vintage at the close of the day, or with creamy cheeses, crab and shellfish, chicken and especially their favorite, mac and cheese.

    The Ministry’s pledge to supply to the general population wines of superior value is not the typical example of WineSpeak to which Ministry subjects have been here-to-for conditioned. Rather, The Ministry will work tirelessly on behalf of our loyal Ministry subjects, scrutinizing wine regions and vineyards world-wide, selecting only those which meet the Ministry's rigorous demands for quality, value and regional authenticity, and allegiance to the Party of the Vinterior in that vintage year. Henceforth, Ministry subjects are assured of complete satisfaction with superior quality wine rations which may come from Argentina, Sonoma, Bordeaux or beyond.

    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.
