2016 Pratt Vineyard, Vine Hill Road Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Most everyone knows that Jim Pratt is a grower we truly admire, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that when the opportunity for a little Chardonnay from Vine Hill presented itself, it was a run, don’t walk situation. On the edge of Green Valley near Forestville in the Laguna Hills region, legendary vintner neighbors all around this vineyard are just one clue that something very special is happening here.

SKU: 16MPVHCH7

This Chardonnay has all the exuberance of the Russian River appellation - powerful and seductive in texture with the right amount of energy from the acidity.  I love the plus weight of the wine, and the mouthcoating elements of poached pear and marzipan that lead to layered notes of tangerine, creme brulee and vanilla bean, which linger on the lengthy, seductive finish.

Winemaking:

  • Hand harvested and sorted
  • 100% native fermentation
  • Aged 11 months in French Oak, 33% new, Followed by 6 months aging in stainless steel
  • Bottled 100% unfined and unfiltered March 2018

Clones: Mt. Eden, Robert Young, and Dijon 96

Production: 268 cases
