This is a lovely chardonnay, with very limited production due to the growing season. We source our chardonnay from Charles Heintz's Russian River vineyard, a vineyard that has been farmed by the Heintz for 70 years. What I love about this wine is the lovely acidity and aromas of lemon curd, ginger root, pear, pineapple with a hint of minerality. It is a perfect food wine. It is wonderful paired with hearty root vegetable soups, fish or spicy foods. Our R.Cat Chardonnay spent 20 months in neutral French oak before being bottled.
