2017 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Aromas of fresh apricots, pears, and apple blossom introduce this Chardonnay from the famed Bacigalupi vineyard. Hints of honeysuckle and jasmine lift gracefully from the glass. Layers of vanilla and pie crust add weight, while floral and citrus elements provide a refreshing lift through the mid palate and onto the 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. 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 Bacigalupi Chardonnay blend.
