Winemaker Lori Knapp Notes
Supple, ripely flavored, and well balanced, this is a benchmark Redwood Valley Chardonnay. Full bodied, very fruity in flavor (apple, peach, lime), with overtones of vanilla and toast. Long, full finish. Delicious.

The idea behind this Chardonnay is to have it be expressive of the grape, yet complex and rich enough to pair with some of the most decadent poultry and seafood dishes - or virtually any food because of its balance and acidity. We’ve used a total of 26% new French Oak for the barrel portion of the blend and stainless for the rest. Using both tank and barrel fermentation allows for added complexity from the barrel (aging in barrels sur lies with some battonage adds a light creaminess and richness to the mou ...more... thfeel as well as subtle flavor complexities) and varetal fruit expression from the tank. The result is a Chardonnay rich in flavors of green apple, lime and pineapple. The 2006 Redwood Valley Chardonnay is 100% estate grown from vines planted in the early 1970s. Drink now through 2010.
