The 2019 growing season began about two weeks earlier than usual. The Russian River Valley experienced some rain during flowering, followed by cool temperatures that allowed the grapes to mature gradually. Fruit ripened at lower sugars, thanks to the extended, cool growing season and produced Chardonnay full of flavor, fresh acidity and balance.
2019 Russian River Valley Chardonnay
The 2019 Russian River Chardonnay opens with scents of fresh spring flowers and lemon curd. On the palate, flavors of Kaffir lime and fresh baked lemon meringue with tropical notes. A rich texture is balanced by a burst of perky acidity. Long, crisp finish.
