MacMurray Ranch Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2014
Save $7.00 (31%)
The third in a string of outstanding vintages in the Russian River Valley, 2014 got off to an early start with a short bloom season and desirable fruit set. The absence of significant weather events meant grapes ripened evenly in a mild growing season that remained temperate for its duration apart from cooler, occasionally damp weather in September, which allowed flavors to catch up in what was still a historically early harvest. Throughout the season, the Valley's hallmark fog intrusion allowed grapes in our estate vineyards to retain vibrancy and bright fruit flavors, translating to expressive, fruit-forward Chardonnay with elegant breadth and lift.
