2016 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay
2016 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD: 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 fi rst 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.
 
TASTING NOTES: Pale straw in color, elegant aromas of jasmine and apple blossom fi ll the glass. Just ripened nectarines and white peaches compliment the pronounced fl oral tones while hints of graham cracker provide depth and richness. Balanced natural acidity coupled with a complex essence of zesty citrus oil capture the myriad of fl avors and leave a lasting impression upon the palate.
