Paul Hobbs’s Russian River Chardonnay brings together fruit from some of the area’s most prestigious vineyards, vineyards planted in the valley’s unique weathered sandstone soil. Highlighting the best characteristics of the region, this Chardonnay is a real beauty in the glass: pearlescent pale straw, with lifted aromas of citrus, chamomile tea, and a whole meadow of yellow flowers. The richly-textured palate is layered with white fruit and brioche, and the long finish closes with a hint of minerality.

Harvested at night, when fruit is cool and flavours are fresh, grapes were whole-cluster pressed while still cold from the field. Following a long, slow barrel ferment and complete, spontaneous malolactic ferment by indigenous yeast, the wine matured 12 months in French oak (50% new) and four months in stainless steel. Fine lees were stirred bi-weekly, introducing rich texture and beautiful bakery aromatics. The finished wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

“The 2018 Chardonnay has pretty scents of dried leaves, hay and almonds with underlying spicy notes and a core of honeyed white peaches. Medium-bodied, the palate is silky in texture with savoury, spicy character, seamless freshness and a long finish. 6,158 cases produced.”
93 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, July 2020

“The 2018 Chardonnay offers a striking combination of energy and textural creaminess. Lemon confit, white flowers, almond and field herbs are some of the many notes that meld together in this super-expressive, inviting Chardonnay from Paul Hobbs. This is a gorgeous appellation-level wine.”
93 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Jan 2020
