Chardonnay 2012
Russian River
Martinelli Vineyard
dual block


We will be proud to present this vibrant and Chardonnay in late 2013, it’s totally in lock step with our goal of producing refreshing, tantalizing Chardonnay in a style similar to Macconnais Saint- Veran or a great Chablis. Sourced from a cool growing region we harvested at the last possible date in September at a ripe 24.6 degrees brix. A long cold fermentation in stainless set the stage for us to capture this wine’s mouth-watering character and structure.

Teasingly coquette-ish aromas of honeysuckle, ripe apricot, peach and pineapple on the nose, with distinct lime and lemon zest notes on the palate. Just the right amount of acid to yield a beautiful mouthfeel with texture and succulence culminating in a round finish where minerals are unearthed.
