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 Crème Brûlée with a balanced and elegant Finish.
Our Chardonnay is hand-picked at dawn from several Russian River Valley vineyards to
maintain ideal brix levels of 24° to 24.5°. Once at the winery, we whole cluster press the
fruit and gently rack into French and Hungarian oak barrels for fermentation. A quarter
of the juice is held aside to ferment and age in stainless steel and the two lots are blended
at the time of botting. This yields an elegant layering of toasty, vanilla overtones with
bright fruit Flavors and a graceful, sophisticated Finish.
