For Chardonnay, Gary Farrell wines are anchored primarily by three Russian River Valley vineyards: Rochioli, Allen and Westside Farms. These iconic vineyards provide Gary Farrell Winery with older heritage clones as well as a diverse array of French Dijon clones supplying the mixture of lush citrus, tropical fruit tones and bright acidity for which the winery’s Chardonnays are renowned.
Aromas of stone fruit, Gravenstein apple, honeysuckle, jasmine, and kaffir lime leaf fill the glass. Flavors of lemon, butterscotch and honey emerge on the palate followed by hints of almond and baking spices. Seamless on the palate, the creamy texture is underlined with a backbone of juicy acidity, delivering a beautiful wine with lovely intensity and persistence.
