Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
Burgundian in style, our Chardonnay is distinctive, reflecting the Russian River Appellation where it’s grown. Warm days and cool nights help develop good acid; our slow barrel fermentation in neutral French oak along with weekly lees stirring creates a wonderful mouth feel while also preserving the fruity characteristics of this wine. Allowed to naturally go through maloactic fermentation, you will find a perfect balance of acid and fruit with vanilla on the nose followed by some minerality and an abundance of pears and apples on the finish; like our red wines, this wine is unfiltered.
