Tasting Notes
This gorgeous oak puncheon fermented Chardonnay is rich and vibrant, exuding aromas of stone fruit, lime peel, melon and citrus blossom. On the palate, flavors of lemon oil, honeysuckle, nectarine and pear tart accentuate the slightly crisp, yet equally unctuous texture. The finish is long, zesty and persistent, with clean, yet mouth-coating oiliness, moderate structure and mouthwatering acidity.
Vineyard Notes
Martaella Vineyard is located in the heart of Russian River Valley in an area known as Laguna de Santa Rosa. The 58-acre property was initially planted in 2005 before being expanded in 2008, and currently has 42 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The climate in this beautiful neighborhood of the Russian River Valley is heavily influenced by the intrusion of fog from the Pacific Ocean, which cools the region down by as much as 40 degrees. The vineyard was planted with a very high vine density, similar to the way vines are planted in Burgundy, France. High density planting yields smaller berries, smaller clusters and better overall concentration and balance. Four heirloom selections of Chardonnay were planted to express the uniqueness of the site and the beauty of the varietal. The Montrachet selection produces small clusters with incredible concentration and intensity.
