2018 Russian River Valley Hopkins River Ranch Chardonnay

Hints of white flower and orange blossom complement fruit flavors of honeysuckle, lemon curd, and white peach. Musque undertones are balanced nicely by the fresh acidity, while the Damy French oak adds a wonderful creaminess with a touch of baking spices.

Production notes

Single vineyard Chardonnay Clone 809 was sourced from the Hopkins Vineyard in the Middle Ranch neighborhood of the Russian River Valley. This Dijon clone has highly aromatic fruit flavors with perfumed undertones and is bred for its adaptiviness to cool weather terroir, naturally lower yields and smaller fruit. 

This vintage has all the makings of greatness. Temperate warm days and cooler nights enabled optimal brix and pH, and the fruit quality was superb due the long growing season and late harvest. 100% barrel fermented in Damy French oak, 25% new, 15% one-year old, with the remainder in two-year and neutral French barrels. The wine was aged nine months Sur Lie.
