This wine is from California's most prestigious region for Chardonnay, the Russian River Valley. The grapes from Orsi Vineyard offer notes of stone fruits. The Syar Vineyard delivers floral aromas and flavors. The Cornerstone Vineyard's Dijon Clone imparts tropical and citrus characteristics. The result is an intense, full-bodied wine with excellent structure.
Chardonnay was the first wine they made, and one of the wines she continues to love. While this one is for all of you who have patiently waited through the zestier whites to get to some buttery ripe California Chard, Susie still balances that buttery fruit with a good dose of acidity.
