2016 Ivywood Chardonnay

Russian River Valley


Less than 15 mi from the Pacific Ocean as the crow flies, the Ivywood vineyard is heavily influenced by the same natural forces that influence our Northern California coastline.  The vineyard sits at 800 ft, with multiple row aspects, creating complexity and character.  Due to its proximity to the coast, the vines struggle every year to ripen, and as a result, waiting for the right time to pick can be quite painful!  That being said, our patience is almost always rewarded, and although the Chardonnay is always one of our last picks of the year, its always one of our most interesting wines.



    The nose fills with freesia, warm pear, and baked apple pie.  The palate is chamomile, dusty slate, and light notes of tropical fruit.  As always, a shimmering rich acidity compliments the fruit and mineral notes, providing some grounding for the palate.  The finish is absolute oaky deliciousness! – vanilla graham crackers and sweet spice.
