This classic representation of Russian River Chardonnay from Lynmar features a selection of clones, each vinified separately and blended together, that show the range of flavors and textures that can be achieved in this climate. 

Vineyard

The 2017 Russian River Chardonnay is a blend of Rued clone grown on the Quail Hill Estate Vineyard and Clone 4 from Sweeney Vineyard.

Winemaking

Lynmar’s state-of-the-art, multilevel, gravity-flow winery allows the gentlest treatment of the grapes as they arrive in the cellar. Harvested in the cool, early morning hours, the delicate clusters are transferred to the press with a forklift to avoid pumping. The juice is drained by gravity, then allowed to settle and complete fermentation before being transferred to aging vessels.

This wine spent seven months in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak

Tasting Notes

A green-gold color in the glass, this wine offers
vibrant aromas of jasmine flower, orange zest, honeydew and wet stone. A stunningly bright entry on the palate with fresh acidity leads to notes of quince, persimmon and fresh crushed gravel. The elegant structure leads to a clean finish with notes of Bartlett pear and lemon-lime.

"Fresh and focused"

Wine Enthusiast (Editor's Choice ) - October 3, 2019 "This wine sees time in both stainless steel and oak. Flavors of pear, lemon and grapefruit are highlighted by fresh, focused acidity, with a round, smooth midpalate adding layers."
