Russian River Valley

2020 Bootlegger's Hill Russian River Valley Chardonnay

From one of the coolest sites we work with on a high ridge just east of the town of Occidental. The nose shows lemon citrus zest, Honeysuckle, spicy carnation, cardamom-clove, fresh peach, and green apple along with a toasty yeast note. The palate is driven by mineral-laced acidity, crisp and dry, while maintaining an oily richness that is beguilingly dense and lingering before the profound acidity clears the way for the next sip.
