Winemaker Tom Parmeson Notes
We were very fortunate to get grapes from Josephine Hill, owned by Lee Martinelli Jr., a fourth generation farmer. Our grapes come from two different blocks in the vineyard which each exhibit unique flavors. I can tell when harvest is approaching as one block reminds me of fresh baked apple pie and the other a lemon drop candy. The blend of the two makes a really nice combination. Tasting Notes Lemon verbena, honeysuckle and granny smith apple aromas mingle to create a tantalizing first impression on this Chablis- style Chardonnay. Flavors of lemon curd, ripe white peaches, almonds and hint of buttered toast make for a complex yet balanced wine. The vineyard’s close proximity to the Russian River is evident, providing crisp acidity a ...more... nd a delicate structure. Best pairings include soft cheeses, herb crusted halibut, blinis with smoked salmon and dill, and lobster rolls.
