2019 Chardonnay ~ Peters Vineyard ~ Russian River Valley ~ 750 ml
2019 was a good year for Chardonnay at Papapietro Perry. This vintage starts with an enticing nose packed with fresh Meyer lemon that’s kissed with just the right measure of toasty crème brûlée. The vibrant lemon carries over into a delicious, expansive taste of wine. On the palate: the bright Meyer lemon is infused with creamy vanilla and toast notes from the barrel. As the wine opens, subtle green apple, mineral and flint notes add complexity. This is a wonderfully lush wine, but there’s plenty of acidity to keep things in line. It pairs well with cheese (especially soft and semi soft goat) and food (salmon, shrimp seafood chowder).
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.
