Brilliant silver straw in color, the Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay exudes rich aromatics reminiscent of ripe apples and pears with hints of stone fruit and citrus. The intense fruit-forward flavors are bright and juicy with ripe apples, pears and fig, highlighted by nuances of toffee and vanilla. The creamy mouthfeel is a result of hand stirring the lees during barrel aging.
|The richness makes this Reserve Chardonnay a great match for fresh shellfish, seafood and poultry, especially with cream – or citrus-infused sauces. Also an excellent companion to veal or pork.
