Tasting Notes
Superbly balanced and focused upon entry, this wine presents an array of stone fruit flavors, lemon meringue pie, honey crisp apple, and zesty citrus. Aromas of pie crust, baking spices, vanilla, and cedar provide a compelling depth of aroma. Medium bodied and remarkably silky throughout, this offering is a classic expression of Bacigalupi Chardonnay.
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.
