2016 Eastside Vineyard Russian River Chardonnay

Our passion for Eastside begins with its rocky slopes and cobbled soil, and is rewarded with the small, concentrated clusters that these vines struggle to produce each year.  The distinctive site-specific undertones and complex fruit-driven overtones of this wine exemplify an Aubert Chardonnay.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

A wine with a definite sense of place, the 2016 Eastside Chardonnay gives a strong impression of its stony terroir. Aromas of white peach, pear liqueur and a hint of smoke are impossible to resist. The incisive minerality carries the mouthfeel from beginning to end and is supplemented with dried apricot and musky lime. The greenish hue on the edge of the glass is indicative of the health of the wine. Balanced and well-proportioned, drink this wine over the next 10-15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
