2015 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay

Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Delicate aromas of perfume and white flowers slowly fill the glass. Hints of Gravenstein apple, nectarines, and apricots provide depth. The palate is exceptionally soft upon entry, and the abundant floral and fruit elements integrate seamlessly. Poised and deftly balanced, the subtle intensity of flavors and texture create an elegant backdrop and a persistent finish.
Vineyard Notes
In 1956, Helen and Charles Bacigalupi purchased 121 acres of prime vineyard land along Westside Road, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. And, in 1964, they were among the first in the area to plant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Bacigalupi family grapes garnered fame in 1976 when they were used to make Chateau Montelena’s winning entry in that year’s Paris Tasting. The oldest vines that remain on the property were planted in 1967 on St. George rootstock and are a mix of head trained and cordon-trained vines. This historic block is one of the main components of our new Bacigalupi Chardonnay blend.
