2016 Chardonnay ~ Peters Vineyard ~ Russian River Valley ~ 750 ml
The Peters Vineyard is a former apple orchard and that shows throughout this delicious chardonnay. The nose starts with flavors of green apple and ripe pear with subtle oak and spice aromas. Gala apple, cardamom spice, Asian pear and honeydew melon flavors weave layers of lush textures on the palate. A hint of wet stone minerality with a balanced acidity drives a lingering finish. This is our favorite wine to serve with Dungeness crab and other light seafood favorites!
Located a few miles west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Russian River Valley appellation, lies Peters Vineyard, the backbone of our production. An ideal location for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this former apple orchard is blanketed by the cool ocean fog in the mornings and evenings, coaxing out the grapes’ best flavors. The hot sunny days intensify the fruit, and create just the flavor profile we are looking for in our wine.
