|Taste||vanilla and hints of Creme Brulee|
The 2016 Raeburn Chardonnay shows an array of complex fruit tones ranging from pear and Gravenstein apple to nectarine. The fruit is beautifully complemented with toasted oak, vanilla and hints of Creme Brulee with a balanced and elegant finish.
This Chardonnay is hand-picked at dawn from several Russian River Valley vineyards to maintain ideal brix levels of 24º to 24.5º. Once gently pressed, 75% of the juice is fermented in French and Hungarian oak barrels. This yields an elegant layering of toasty, vanilla overtones with bright fruit flavors. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.
