2018 Chardonnay ~ Peters Vineyard ~ Russian River Valley ~ 750 ml
The fruit that comes from this former apple orchard showcases aromas of Meyer lemon, Gala apple and subtle hints of oak. Well framed with expressive citrus and melon, the Peters Vineyard Chardonnay delivers crisp flavors of white stone fruit, yellow plum and honeydew melon. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and concentrated with juicy acidity that drives a lingering finish.
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.
