 Product Description

Named for the early Russian fur trappers who settled on the California coast in the first part of the 19th century, the Russian River Valley is formed by the eponymous river which cuts through the rugged Coast Range Mountains. This creates a passageway for the cool afternoon sea breezes and evening fog, which flow inland before eventually spreading out onto the Santa Rosa Plain. It is also an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay as the cooling influence preserves the grapes' natural acidity and crisp fruit flavors.

The grapes for this Chardonnay were hand picked in the pre-dawn hours and whole-cluster pressed at the winery. After settling overnight, the juice was racked off the solids and yeast was added. 48 hours later when the yeast were just becoming active, the juice was racked into French oak barrels for fermentation. After the primary alcoholic fermentation was complete, the barrels underwent a secondary malolactic fermentation that softened the wines flavor and gave it a slight buttery note. The barrels were aged sur lie for seven months, undergoing battonage or stirring every two weeks to add body and yeasty notes.
