2015 Chardonnay, Hopkins River Ranch

The 2015 is our second vintage of Chardonnay from the Hopkins River Ranch in the Russian River Valley. The cold, foggy climate along the Russian River allows this cool-climate grape to ripen slowly, creating exceptional flavor and preserving the natural acidity.

Brilliant in clarity, with a pale straw color, this is a youthful and crisp Chardonnay. It immediately offers flavors of honeysuckle and green apple. Gentle treatment in the cellar, and aging in 100% French oak showcase the wine’s minerality with a hint of spice on the finish. Best served slightly chilled, this elegant wine will offer many years of drinking. Pair with dishes demanding a medium-bodied wine such as lemon chicken, or pan-seared scallops.
