Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay Russian River Ranches

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Aromas of Fuji apple, fresh roses, lime, lemon blossom and nectarine are complemented with touches of nougat, baking spices and Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature wet stone minerality. True to the Russian River Ranches style, the wine is elegant and balanced with a nice, bright acidity and a long focused structure. Crisp and zesty flavors of lemon drop, lime and grapefruit are accented with a nice barrel spice. A light, creamy mid-palate flows into a crisp, citrus acidity rounding out to a long and persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The 2011 Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay from the Russian River in California is a beautiful combination of mineraltiy, apple flavors, and crisp acidity; and this half bottle version makes it perfect for those who are not planning on having more than a couple glasses. Pairs perfectly with poultry and fish.
