Næsen viser stor klasse med raffinerede toner af citrus, grønne og gule æbler, pære, fersken, knuste sten og fad som er perfekt balanceret. I smagen har du masser af god Napa frugt som både har krop og mineralitet og vinen opleves både koncentreret, finessebetonet og med typisk cremet eftersmag.

Frugten kommer fra to forskellige marker i Russian River – Wood Vineyard som ligger på River Rd og River Vineyard som ligger i hjertet af Russian River. Der er ikke ændret på fremstillingsprincipperne siden første årgang i 1993 og man holder stadig fast i principperne om ’hands off’ så den delikate Chardonnay drue kan udtrykke sig fuldt ud. Vinen lagres ’sur-lie’ på nye franske fade og gennemgår naturligvis fuld malolaktisk gæring.

Familien Buehler har dyrket vin i Napa Valley i mere end 4 årtier og har igennem alle disse år søgt balancen mellem at lade markerne 'tale for vinen' men samtidig sikre det som mange vil kalde US Pleasure til en fornuftig pris. At det er lykkedes er der vist ingen tvivl om, både Robert Parker samt Antonio Galloni fremhæver netop huset for deres yderst fornuftige priser og meget stabile kvalitet. Vinfremstillingen tager udgangspunkt i yderst beskedne teknikker og der produceres Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel samt Chardonnay.

Our 2015 Russian River Chardonnay is born from two vineyards within the Russian River appellation: Wood Vineyard, located on River Rd and River Vineyard, located in the heart of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley on East Side Road. The floral, mineral, and lime aromas and steely structure of the River Vineyard are complemented by the peach and apricot aromas and more fleshy structure of the Wood Vineyard.

Our winemaking philosophy remains the same since we first introduced the Russian River Chardonnay in 1993: less intervention is better in dealing with a delicate variety like chardonnay. Winemaking techniques including sur-lie aging, lees stirring, full malolactic fermentation, and the measured use of some new French oak are employed to bring you this delicious rendition from Sonoma’s premier chardonnay appellation.

The 2015 Russian River harvest delivered an early, high quality Chardonnay crop that left us wishing for more of a good thing. After a warm, early spring, the cool May weather interrupted fruit set and the resulting lighter clusters translated to a smaller than normal crop. As with most early harvests, the late October rains were welcomed since all grapes had long been picked and were safely fermenting away at the winery.

Balance and proportion best describe the character of our 2015 Russian River Chardonnay; it displays abundant floral/ stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.
