Chardonnay

Russian River Valley
Overview

This decadent yet balanced offering from cool-climate Russian River Valley vineyards opens with candied pineapple and key lime pie aromas, accented by notes of white flowers, brown spice, toast, vanilla, butter, and honeycomb. The palate reveals a viscous, mouth-coating texture, framed by tropical fruit and lemon meringue flavors. Hints of citrus and honeydew melon give way to minerality and refreshing acidity. A smooth finish and subtle oak undertones round out this ultra-complex Chardonnay.

Critical Acclaim

"Bravium's incredibly boutique, small production wines deliver traditional, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that are a true gift and rarity in the state thanks to his emphasis on carefully tended and selected terroir and his dedication to the "less is more" approach."

— Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier

"Ripe apricots, melon and buttered croissant notes plus a hint of honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with satiny textured stone fruit goodness, finishing with good length and a racy lift. Great value!”

— Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
