Tasting Notes:

This Russian River Valley Chardonnay shows brilliant straw color. The aromas immediately lend a lemon citrus core with tree fruits of pear and crisp apple lined with a floral not of gardenia. The grapes are 100% Martinelli Vineyard. French oak is balanced and integrated as a hint of brioche and toast. This wine is 25% tank fermented. On the pallet there is a focused purity in acidity and round mouth feel with minerality and crispness. The finish is refreshing and leaves an elegant lingering mouth feel. This Chardonnay would be ideal with Seafood, cream sauces, roasted chicken, white fish, and zesty vegetable dishes. Mild gouda and farm house cheeses.


Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled and either put straight to barrel or left in tank. Fermentation temperatures were in the 70-degree range followed by lees stirring for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malolactic fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates. Fermentations were particularly long with the wines from this vintage.
