With its enchanting perfume and layers of citrus and stone fruit flavors, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay is approachable yet complex, creamy yet bright. In other words, a dream in all seasons.

Tasting Notes
Beautiful aromas of stone fruit, honeysuckle and citrus travel from the glass on the first swirl of this straw-hued Chardonnay. Upon entry, the texture is pleasing with racy acidity that is rounded out by the impact of the wine’s sur lie aging. Peach, apricot, grapefruit rind, lemon curd and a profound minerality make a statement on the palate with flavors that last from start to finish.
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.
