The 2017 Eastside Chardonnay is powerful and opulent. Appearance: The greenish hue on the edge of the glass is indicative of the health of the wine. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking. Aroma: Notes of the stony terroir weave through seductive aromas of lemon zest, apple crumble, and orange blossom. Flavor: The palate is carried by an integrated acid line complemented by dried apricot and lime dust. Expressive and palate-staining, the 2017 Eastside has the energy to drink young for over a decade.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the 2017 Chardonnay Eastside Vineyard comes from a warmer site in the Russian River (usually picked second after Sugar Shack) planted to Montrachet clone on very rocky, gravelly soils-the vines really struggle here. It has quite a decadent nose of pineapple upside down cake, almond croissant, peach cobbler and apple crumble with hints of marzipan and orange blossoms. The palate is full-bodied, rich, powerful and opulent in the mouth, with a wonderful oiliness to the texture and a seamless backbone of freshness to give it just enough lift, finishing very long and savory. This is a powerhouse that should offer amazing aging potential.
