Selby Winery, Healdsburg, CA

2015 RRV Chardonnay

 

Best of Class: SF Chronicle Wine Competition 2017!

My favorite white wine is Chardonnay. I feel fortunate to make our Chardonnay with grapes from the best vineyards in Russian River Valley - just one of the reasons it is award-winning. If you love supple, ripe, elegant Chardonnay imbued with subtle notes of toasty oak, this one is outstanding.

Tasting Notes

This wine is from California's most prestigious region for Chardonnay, the Russian River Valley. The grapes from Orsi Vineyard offer notes of stone fruits. The Syar Vineyard delivers floral aromas and flavors.
The Cornerstone Vineyard's Dijon Clone imparts tropical and citrus characteristics.
The result is an intense, full-bodied wine with excellent structure.
