The grapes for this Chardonnay were sourced from cool areas throughout the Russian River Valley growing region. J Vineyards hand-harvested the grapes at 24 Brix and pressed them gently using Champagne press cycles. The must was 100% barrel fermented in 100% French oak, approximately 25% of which was new. Barrels contributed nuanced spice and toast notes, complementing but not overpowering the classic Russian River fruit characteristics of apple, pear and citrus.
