Single Vineyard Green Valley Chardonnay 2016

This vineyard lies in the Green Valley region which is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA. The vineyard’s terroir is very cool due to its close proximity to the ocean and the sandy-loam soil is well drained, providing perfect growing conditions for superior Chardonnay. This ranch has a long history of producing some of our best Chardonnay. Subtle and complex, this Chardonnay offers creamy texture and pleasant minerality with aromas of baked pear, lime and vanilla. The mouthfeel is rich and broad with lively acidity and a lingering finish.

Winemakers Notes

The grapes were hand harvested at night on September 22nd, allowing us to gently process the clusters. At the winery the fruit was whole cluster pressed to protect the crisp flavors of the Chardonnay grapes, and the juice was settled in stainless steel tanks before being placed in French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was bottled after 7 months of extended sur lie aging where the yeast lees were stirred weekly to give the wine its nice, creamy texture.
