Girard Russian River Valley Sonoma County Chardonnay
Description: VINTAGE NOTES
Given the regionís geography and typically cooler climate due to a nightly fog layer, we tend to achieve a slower ripening rate than in other regions. Thriving in this climate, our 2014 fruit developed a character and acid structure emblematic of a Russian River Chardonnay: rich, creamy overtones balanced by bright acidity.

Sourced from various vineyards and a few small longtime grape growing families in the Russian River Valley, these vineyards have garnered international acclaim for producing world-class Chardonnay.

On the palate, the bright acidity laced with Mandarin orange, citrus peel and Bosc pear offers a welcome balance to the baking spice nose. As this wine coats the palate, note a layer of minerality and oak which does not domineer but, rather, adds character and a creamy finish to this Russian River classic.
