2017 Westside Farms Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
Aromas of citrus zest and kaffir lime leaf are interwoven with subtle hints of pie dough and lightly toasted vanilla. The palate unfolds with generous layers of lemon oil, tart green apple, and flavors of brioche, vanilla wafer, and grilled pineapple. The wine’s intensity builds by the minute, as precise minerality, coupled with an exceptionally silky mouthfeel, guides the experience from start to finish.
Vineyard Notes
Just four miles up Westside Road from our winery, the 40-acre Westside Farms vineyard 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. With deep, river-deposited sandy loam soils, the cool evenings prolong the ripening process, yielding consistently elegant, intense fruit.

Food Pairing:

Eloté (Mexican street corn)
