When you taste our Chardonnay, "Brumaire," you are as much experiencing the unique and particular Russian River Valley climate that provides its namesake as you are the zesty, citrusy fruit flavors comprising its body. Named for the fog that famously cloaks the region, "Brumaire" calls to mind a cool, crisp, perfect Northern California morning with a flavor sure to enchant and refresh.
The "Brumaire" experience leads with a nose of key lime aromatics that give way to the creamy texture and bright acidity that have become telltale signs of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. The stone fruit and citrus notes on the palate provide just a hint of the racy mineral finish, a beautiful balance of classic sophistication, and fresh, surprising flavor.
Along with the foggy mornings that define the region, the moderate Pacific climate plays a large role in the flavors produced by our discrete group of select clones. We aren't the first to call 2019 a Goldilocks vintage for Russian River Valley Chardonnay, but it’s worth repeating. The season was exceptional in its consistency, and this new release has a captivating citrus blossom perfume, stone fruit flavors and zesty minerality that could easily be described as just right.SHOP NOW
