2010 Chardonnay Russian River Valley

This Chardonnay is built to show off the mineral character of the vineyard as well as fruity notes highlighted by the absence of new oak. It is quite bright and fresh, steely clean on the palate—perhaps thanks to the lack of malolactic fermentation—and yet still offers plenty of citrus and stone fruit flavors. A departure from our barrel fermented “house style.” Half of this wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks; the other half was barrel fermented in “neutral” mature oak using native yeast.

In the Russian River Valley and throughout northern California, 2010 will be remembered as one of the coolest vintages on record. But the sun smiled on us throughout the growing season and allowed for slow ripening with lovely fruit flavors, albeit with lower-than-normal sugars. In mid-October, the vintage was marked by 5 days of torrential rains that affected any of the 15-to-20 percent of the growers who still had grapes left hanging. Fortunately, all of Peter Paul’s grapes were harvested prior to this rain. The lower sugars led to lower alcohol levels that have given this vintage a mark of great elegance and finesse.
