Barra 2021 Reserve Chardonnay

Barra 2021 Reserve Chardonnay

Redwood Valley Vineyards, our home ranch originally planted in 1955 and located at 837 feet in elevation, was the source for 100% of this organically farmed 2021 chardonnay. Handpicked in early October from blocks K, P and R, our Wente clone chardonnay was barrel fermented in 30% new French oak with the remaining fermenting in more neutral barrels. After primary fermentation, the wine benefited from bi-weekly lees stirring using the bâttonage method to add richness. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel over a 30 day period.

This single vineyard chardonnay opens with an aromatic nose of ripe pear, vanilla, banana and warm caramel notes. On the palate, its richness is balanced by refreshing acidity and delicate accents of peach, fresh sourdough, and honeysuckle. Captivating flavors of caramel, shortbread and stone fruit round out the palate and leave a long, lingering finish.
