Russian River , USAVintage:
Aromas of lemon, pineapple and nectarine are supported on the nose by subtle hints of Brioche, spice and oak and flavors of pear, tangerine and honeydew melon.Heady flavors of apple galette add a vein of richness. The texture is fleshy, vibrant and concentrated with juicy, yet balanced, acidity and a lingering finish.The home of La Crema and heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, the Russian River Valley AVA is one of the premier wine growing regions in the world. One unique element of the area is the Pacific Ocean’s maritime influence which moderates the warms days of the growing season allowing grapes to ripen and develop slowly. The unique weather patterns combined with a diversity of well-draining soils make the appellation well suited to produce cool climate chardonnay. The fruit for this wine was sourced from some of La Crema’s finest estate and grower vineyards in the Russian River Valley AVA.
