Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex stone fruits, pear, citrus and peach aromas unfold in the glass, slowly revealing additional floral and mineral notes. The entry is bright and juicy, giving way to an oily and coating midpalate full with flavors complementary to the characters on the nose. The vibrant natural acidity on the finish leaves the palate refreshed and eager for the next sip.
Vineyard Notes
EnRoute Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, “Brumaire” is named for the fog that gently envelops the vineyards in Russian River Valley, creating the perfect climate to nurture our fruit to ideal ripeness. A discrete group of select clones and growing areas combine to produce the “Brumaire” blend. The Wente clone benefits from the warmth of the northernmost vineyard along Westside Road and contributes an oily texture and tropical notes. The Rued clone, grown in the cool climate of Green Valley, brings beautiful perfume and floral notes to the wine. The Heritage clone provides notes of pear and citrus from a vineyard cultivated in the Goldridge sandy loam along Vine Hill Road in Sebastopol.
