Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Chardonnay 2016

SKU 36551


Opening with fresh, vibrant aromas of lime zest and preserved lemon, this offering from the famed Rochioli Allen vineyard once again displays exceptional purity, lively acidity, and an underlying minerality. Floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle work in harmony with layers of brioche, butterscotch and raw honey. Flavors of lemon custard and crème brulee are delicately balanced with fine, silky tannins, and subtle vanilla toast from luxurious French oak puncheons.

Wine EnthusiastThis lovely, light-hearted white offers an approachable embrace of firm lemon, fig and mango. It is acid-driven on the palate, with just a touch of lushness on the structured finish.

Medium-bodied with oodles of freshness defining the stone fruit and toasty flavors, it has a lively citrus kick to the finish. 5,203 cases produced.
