2019 Olivet Lane Vineyard Chardonnay

Appellation
Russian River Valley

Tasting Notes
The lovely bouquet offers enticing, complex aromas of Meyer lemon, stone fruit, graphite, honeysuckle, lemongrass and baked pear tart. The first sip is succulent and tangy, while the mid-palate is zesty and oily with lots of verve. This incredibly fresh, energetic Chardonnay finishes with a pop of acidity and perfectly silky, mouthcoating phenolics. The ensuing rich, creamy texture lingers on the tongue long after the wine is gone.
Vineyard Notes
Pellegrini’s Olivet Lane Vineyard was planted in 1975 to Wente selection on AXR rootstock. The vineyard sits on 65 acres of sloping benchland in the Santa Rosa Plain, in between the warmer Westside Road region and the cooler Green Valley, where warm summer days are moderated by cool breezes and chilly evening temperatures. The combination of low temperatures, regular fog intrusion and well-drained loam, clay soils create an excellent environment for growing Chardonnay that develop cool-climate characteristics and impeccable acid at fairly low sugars. The wines from this vineyard simultaneously express power and finesse, and they do so with tremendous balance.
