Our Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay, light straw with a golden edge, offers forward fruit with minerality, lifted and framed by sweet oak notes and spice. This wine reflects the best of what Russian River Valley fruit can offer: rich, complex wines with depth and agility. Their vibrancy and freshness wake up the palate.On the nose, look for orange blossoms, sweet toasty notes, and hints of smoke with lemon curd, tart apple, tangerine, cream, and hints of buttery caramel and baking spice. Mineral notes highlight green apple freshness. Flavors include bright fresh fruit like pineapple, lemon zest, tangerine, and Granny Smith apple. Nicely spiced on the palate with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, this wine is rich, creamy and full of flavor with structure and a lifted tropical finish.
You’ll find yourself transformed by the purity of the cool, coastal fog of the Russian River Valley with this Reserve Chardonnay made with fruit primarily from our own Goldfields estate vineyard.
