2016 Parallel Russian River Chardonnay (750mL)

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Russian River Chardonnay is a super aromatic chardonnay, light golden color with notes of grapefruit, lemon tart and a hint of brioche. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, acid-driven with excellent weight and texture coming from the partial malolactic fermentation and the oak profile. Notes of citrus, marzipan and lemon zest with a hint of vanilla cutting the finish leave you with tons of flavors and vibrancy."

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"This wine offers a lovely use of oak, which contributes to its salty, stony mineral profile that pleases from the start. Lemon, apple and ginger notes combine around nice, lifted acidity and a textured, layered and complex midpalate that lasts on the finish, balanced in weight and breadth."
