    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemaking Green Valley, the coolest of the Russian River Valley sub-appellations, allows for even longer maturation time, providing wonderful intensity and complexity to the fruit profile. As with all of our Chardonnays, we select a minimum of three strains of yeast for primary fermentation which add complexity and compliment the fruit profiles contributed by the vineyard. This wine was 100% barrel fermented, incorporating 35% new French oak, sur lie aged, and ML fermentation in approximately 80% of the lot. Though the vines are only six years old, through meticulous vineyard management and care, Cresta Ridge is rapidly becoming one of our most popular and highly acclaimed Chardonnays.

    Winemaker's Notes This 2005 Cresta Ridge Chardonnay exhibits aromas of orange blossom, citrus zest hints of toffee. Luscious, fresh cut green melon and spiced pear flavors are enhanced by interesting mineral components. Brimming with vibrant acidity and freshness, this wine has incredible complexity, moderately toasty notes of oak and a full mouth feel. This Chardonnay shows great balance with a lingering, crisp finish.
