"Our bright 2018 Russian River Valley Chardonnay showcases the best of this Classic Chardonnay growing region. Opening with aromas of orange blossom, golden delicious apple and ginger, the lengthy palate offers layers of depth and nuance. Creamy and textured on the forefront, the wine evolves to crisp and lively acidity at the mid-point middle before finishing with richness and roundness. Layered notes of ripe Anjou pear, baked apple, lemon curd and candied grapefruit on the palate mingle with hints of toast, clove and vanilla that support the fruit notes on the lengthy finish. Try this Chardonnay with a Madras curry with grilled shrimp or pork loin stuffed with apricots and almonds. For a cheese pairing, sip alongside St. George or a farmstead cheese." - J. Vineyards

"The grapes for this Chardonnay were sourced from cool areas throughout the Russian River Valley growing region. We hand-harvested the grapes and pressed them gently. The juice was entirely barrel fermented in 100% French oak, approximately 33% of which was new. Aged for nine months, barrels contributed nuanced spice and toast notes, complementing but not overpowering the classic Russian River Valley fruit characteristics. Each vineyard, block and clone were kept separate until blending, for a total of 28 different lots available for blending decisions."- Winemakers Notes
