Peters Vineyard, Russian River Valley

$32.00

Overview

Planted in West Sebastopol, this is a premier location for Chardonnay.  The vineyard is next to Luther Burbank’s Farm and the soil composition is rich Goldridge Sandy Loam.  With the consistent coastal fog extending hang time well into October, this fruit is fully developed and loaded with complexity.  The Chardonnay is comprised of Clones 4 and 76.   

 

Tasting Notes

Reminiscent of a classic white Burgundy but with a California twist, this Chardonnay displays flavors of ripe pineapple and vibrant minerality accompanied by mouth-watering natural acidity typically found in Peters Vineyard. This Chardonnay is elegant enough to pair with delicate foods and delicious enough to drink by itself after a long day.
