A Mix of Old & New World With This Russian River Chardonnay
This wine blends grapes from two local Russian River vineyards, as well as from famous Burgundy vineyards. Both of these sites shined with the Lolita Ranch contributing tropical fruit and exotic spice, while the old world leaning John Dory added citrus fruit flavors and a flinty, stony minerality reminiscent of Burgundy. The wine strikes a balance with silky texture and notes of peach, apricot and a kiss of toasty French oak on the mid-palate. Citrus fruits help it glide along to finish with a soft and creamy acid backbone and pleasing stone minerality.
No need to wait. This wine is ready for you to drink now with crabcakes and spicy aioli, gnocchi with pesto or even chicken piccata.
