Winemaker Cary Gott Notes
This vintage of Chardonnay is made from Estate Grown Chardonnay sustainably farmed in the Russian River Valley Appellation. This lot is a mix of Wente and Musque clones, offering great structure and unique aromatics. The hand-picked fruit was carefully selected, and night harvested at the exact moment when the fruit reached maturity to craft an elegant, delicate style of Chardonnay. The grapes were delivered to Punchdown Cellars on the morning of September 24, 2018. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the resulting Chardonnay juice then settled for 2 days in a stainless tank and went through a three-week cool fermentation. After fermentation, the grapes were pressed, and the wine was barreled in 40% new French Oak and 60% neutral Frenc ...more... h Oak for 10 months. The wine aged Sur Lie in barrel with frequent stirring of the lees to add depth and class. This 2018 Russian River Chardonnay has beautiful aromas of bright fruits and spices that leap from the glass. They lead to dense and rich flavors that fills the mouth. It is a complex wine that has an elegant range of flavors of exotic fruits and spices. Tangerine, Apricot and toasted oak from special cooperage. A beautiful style of Russian River Chardonnay that will age gracefully for many years.
