Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Raeburn Chardonnay 2020 - Russian River Valley
The Russian River Valley is cooled by daily fog off the Pacific Ocean located a few miles to the west. Nearly every evening, fog flows up the Russian River channel and east through the Petaluma Gap producing diurnal temperature swings ranging from 35° to 40° F. Nature’s air conditioning allows our Chardonnay to ripen slowly while retaining its bright, natural acidity.
Raeburn is an Olde English term which means the river where one goes to drink. So it’s fitting that Raeburn’s expressive, beautifully balanced Chardonnay begins in the heart of the Russian River Valley where some of the world’s finest Chardonnay grapes are grown. Ripe, luscious and delicious, let Raeburn take you to the river to share a laugh with friends, enhance your favorite meal or just let the day fall away.
Raeburn Chardonnay shows an array of complex fruit tones ranging from pear and Gravenstein apple to nectarine. The fruit is beautifully complemented with toasted oak, vanilla and hints of Crème Brûlée with a balanced and elegant finish.
