BLUE FARM CHARDONNAY, LACERONI VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2013
This wine is the product of farming by Anne Moller-Racke and winemaking by Kenneth Juhasz, the original team behind Donum Estate in Carneros. Here, they've created a gorgeous, elegant expression of lemon zest and pear that harmonizes with stony minerality and brash, bristling acidity that becomes succulent on the palate. Atop it all is a scent of fresh-cut white flowers.
NVWE Notes: Richly-layered and well-defined, the aromas of this Chardonnay are a melange of baked green apple, white peach, lemon curd, lime, pineapple core, orange blossom, pie crust and toasted hazelnut scents. Things prove just as weighty and flavor-packed on the mid-palate as expected, yet the citric influences provide a more than adequate foil to the wine’s rich body and juicy tarte tatin and peach tart notes. The finish is full, lingering and harmonious, as the deep apple, white peach, lemon, pineapple, baking spice, meringue and hazelnut flavors are braced by zest and a chalky mineral counterpoint. Built for full-flavored entrees, its is delicious right now and should remain so for several years. 242 cases produced.
