2016 Westside Farms Vineyard Chardonnay
2016 Westside Farms Vineyard Chardonnay
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD: Just four miles up Westside Road from our winery, the 40-acre Westside Farms vineyard that sits along the banks of the winding Russian River. The Chardonnay grown here is a particular favorite of ours. The vines were planted in 1989 to Chardonnay Clone 4, and we work closely with the Kaisers on viticultural decisions throughout the growing season. With deep, river-deposited sandy loam soils, the cool evenings prolong the ripening process, yielding consistently elegant, intense fruit.
 
TASTING NOTES: This beautiful wine offers something delicious and intriguing for all types of Chardonnay lovers. Its aromatic prowess and exceptional balance between richness and acidity put it in a special category of its own. It is bold and unctuous, while simultaneously possessing a core of acid and minerality that is reminiscent of a great Meursault. In its youth, it expresses characteristics of toasted almonds enveloped in a floral and flinty background. Lime blossom, verbena, white peach, roasted lemon and brioche are a few of the most intriguing aromas that emerge from the glass. Pure, fresh, focused flavors of Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, citrus zest and hazelnut unfold as the texture builds into a long, structured and tangy finish.
