Fantesca - Chardonnay - Russian River Valley - 2017
Russian River Valley, California, USA
Brilliant, golden straw color with enticing aromas of ripe Chardonnay fruit reminiscent of green apple, Asian pear, citrus, crème brûlée and honey. A touch of toasty French oak enhances the aromatics and leads you to take the first sip. Mouthcoating and luxe with fresh fruit character, nicely balanced acidity and richness. This could be mistaken for white Burgundy in style; quite delicious and lovely. It’s a very consistent wine year after year for us with flavors that mirror the beautiful aromatics. Enjoy!
