Our J Russian River Valley Chardonnay is creamy and generous with aromas of golden apple, pineapple, tangerine and a hint of ginger. Made with nearly all free run juice, this chardonnay is bright and fruit forward with a broad lemon custard mid-palate. The oak is spice-driven and integrated, which complements the ripe fruit flavors and bright acidity.
The grapes for this chardonnay were sourced from cool areas throughout the russian river valley growing region. We hand-harvested the grapes at 24 brix and pressed them gently using champagne press cycles. The must was 100% barrel fermented in 100% french oak, approximately 25% of which was new. Barrels contributed nuanced spice and toast notes, complementing but not overpowering the classic russian river fruit characteristics of apple, pear and citrus. Each vineyard, block and clone was kept separate until blending in may, for a total of 30 different lots available for blending decisions.
