Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Bottle of Russian River Valley Chardonnay from MacMurray Estate Vineyard

88 Points, The Wine Advocate, December 2013 (2013 Russian River Valley Chardonnay)

Our 2013 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a rich expression of this celebrated appellation, with its elegant palate of citrus and lemon crème, underscored by hints of pear and green apple. Subtle notes of sweet caramel and vanilla from oak aging are framed by a luxurious mouthfeel.

We selected the grapes for this Chardonnay from our Two Rock, Del Rio and Laguna vineyards in the Russian River Valley. The 2013 vintage got off to an early start in the Russian River Valley, leading the way to a long, moderate growing season.  The summer was warm and sunny with minimal rainfall, creating the ideal conditions for growing flavorful Chardonnay grapes with excellent acidity.
