De Loach Russian River Chardonnay 2018

Fruit for the De Loach Vineyards Russian River Chardonnay is sourced predominantly from three sites in the heart of the valley including the Boriolo and BCD vineyards, as well as the Norris vineyard in the Chalk Hill region. The cool, foggy Russian River Valley climate allows for slow ripening, ideal for Chardonnay to develop full flavour maturation. The juice was fermented and underwent 100% malolactic conversion in a combination of stainless steel tanks, concrete vats and French oak barrels. The wine was then aged for 10 months. These techniques contributed to a well-balanced wine with bright acidity and a rich, round mouthfeel. The De Loach Russian River Chardonnay is pale straw yellow in colour with rich aromas of lime, white peach and baked apple pie. On the palate, flavours of nutmeg and a touch of caramel frame the vibrant acidity.
