Deceivingly pale at first glance, this light straw-colored wine has tremendous concentration, structure and verve – with steely precision and a superb lemony persistence. Intriguing aromas of white flower petal, lime zest and graphite excite the senses even before the first sip. Incredibly balanced, this Chardonnay delivers flavors of lemon oil, white peach, pear and roasted hazelnut that weave together on the palate, creating a seductive texture and mouth- coating finish. The acid backbone and phenolic structure will allow this wine to age beautifully in bottle for many years to come.

We anchor this exceptional regional blend with fruit from some of our favorite Russian River Valley vineyard sites. We begin with the naturally balanced fruit of Westside Farms adjacent to the Russian River. Nearby Rochioli-Allen offers great concentration and structure. On the east side of the valley, Starr Creek is slightly warmer, producing fruit with rich, concentrated flavors. And just above Forestville, Floodgate Vineyard gives great acidity and intensity, filling out the mid-palate.

Wine maker notes
The Chardonnay was whole cluster pressed using a gentle pressing program to extract only the most desirable solids. The juice was settled for 24 hours, racked off the heavy lees, and then transferred to 40% new Francois Frères, Seguin Moreau and Rousseau barrels, with just the right amount of light, fluffy, creamy lees for a healthy fermentation. After a 7-month aging period, each wine was carefully evaluated and the most elegantly structured wines were selected for this beautiful blend.

Food pairing
With a lively acidity and supple viscosity, this wine will pair exceptionally well with seafood and poultry dishes, as well as a fine aged Gouda.
