Paul Hobbs Winery, 2015 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River Valley

"The 2015 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is just as delicious from bottle as it was from barrel. Open-knit and inviting, with striking purity, the 2015 has much to offer. Yellow orchard fruit, dried flowers, mint and chamomile lead into the textured, resonant finish."

"Dried apricots, mangoes, vanilla, cream, butter, dust and peach stones. Medium to full body with fresh acidity, an oily palate and a butterscotch, deliciously oxidative finish. The ripe fruit is all there, but this has wonderful form and finesse. 11 months in barrels. Drink now."

"Zeroes in on a core of lively, citrus-infused green apple, melon, tangerine and honeydew flavors, revealing a light kiss of smoky, toasty oak that adds dimension. Drink now through 2020. 4,679 cases made."

The 2015 growing season was very warm, resulting in higher concentrated wines.

The grapes are picked at night by hand, and whole cluster pressed immediately upon arrival to the winery. This chardonnay is barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts, and also goes through malolactic fermentation in barrel.

Finally, the wine is aged for 12 months in French Oak Barrels (50% new oak) and 4 months in stainless steel vats. Aged sur lies with bi-weekly bâtonnage.
