2008 Athair Russian River Chardonnay

Russian River Valley
Retail Price: $32.00

Notes from the Winemaker: Our 2008 Russian River Valley Chardonnay was produced from two select vineyards: 90% from Saralee’s Vineyard in Russian River Valley and 10% from the Sangiacomo’s Vineyard in Carneros.  The fruit was harvested in late September and  after a whole cluster press, the wine was barrel fermented using 25% new/75% neutral French oak barrels. Only 50% of the wine was put through malo-lactic  fermentation to add richness.

The end result was a wine with a complex and juicy mix of honeysuckle, Bartlett pear and Lemon Meringue flavors with hints of nutmeg on the finish.

Enjoy Athair Chardonnay with halibut, select cheeses, or just served chilled and enjoyed with friends!
