Winemaker’s Notes:
Our 2010 Russian River Valley Chardonnay contains an tantalizing array of aromas and flavors. Pale golden in color it entices with aromas of baked pear, cinnamon, apple, and intriguing notes of amaretto. This medium Bodied Chardonnay silky on the palate with bright acidity. Flavors melon and pear greet the palate followed by subtle hints of almond and dried apricot. These flavors carry through to the satisfying finish. - Winemaker Brad Longton

Production Notes:
The grapes for our 2010 RRV Chardonnay were whole cluster pressed to bring out the inherent varietal characteristics of the fruit. The juice then underwent native barrel fermentation in 90% new French Oak. 30% of this chardonnay underwent Malolactic fermentation to encourage a subtle creaminess.
