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.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
