2014 Russian River Valley Chardonnay 750ml

90 RP

This Chardonnay is bursting with aromas of citrus blossom, nectarine and spice baked pear. Aromas of white peach and tangerine, knit together by bright acidity for a long-complex finish. Barrel fermentation and oak aging for 12 months have added hints of candied ginger, and baking spice to a subtle minerality on the finish.

Vineyard Notes:
The Chardonnay is now sourced principally from our Martaella Estate Vineyard. We have planted heirloom clones of Chardonnay that retain bright acidity and express beautiful floral and mineral notes. The low-fertility soil and the cool temperatures in this part of the Russian River Valley unite to form an ideal place for growing Chardonnay.

Production Notes:
The fruit was harvested at night and rigorously hand sorted before whole-cluster pressing. After settling overnight, the juice was fermented in 28% new French Oak barrels with indigenous yeast.
