PRODUCTION NOTES

Our 2015 Flanagan Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a clean, balanced Russian River Chardonnay with ripe fruit, bright acidity, and a subtle barrel influence. In 2015 a cool, foggy spring led to very low crop yields. We source the grapes for this wine from several top Russian River Chardonnay sites including Ritchie Vineyard and Bacigalupi Vineyard. We barrel ferment all our Chardonnay, which helps create the beautiful texture in the wine.

TASTING NOTES

Our 2015 Flanagan Chardonnay Russian River Valley has an expressive nose that is typical of the Wente Clone of Chardonnay. Subtle floral notes mingle with hints of orange blossom and apricot. The palette has an elegant profile. Stone fruit and ripe citrus flavors are supported by restrained barrel notes and completed by bright acidity. This wine sings and is a great example of what top Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is focused on balance.
