Cyprus Russian River Chardonnay


2017 Cyprus Russian River Valley Chardonnay...$19.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $26.99

  • Barrel Fermented
  • 33% New oak from the Vosges Forest of France. The wine was aged sur lies in barrel for 10 months.

Great pale straw color.  The nose is fragrant with fruit, pastry crust and toasted almonds. The palate is elegant with mouth-watering acidity and texture. Pears, apples and briny wet stone linger on the crisp, clean finish.  The wine has great  acidity that is crisp and bright, while filling out with an incredibly lush and round mouthfeel that keeps you wanting more.  Great food wine.

Made by winemaker Dan Fitzgerald who came to fame while working for Pinot and Chardonnay superstars Williams-Selyem Winery in Russian River Valley and Robert Sinskey Vineyards in Napa.

"The juice was fermented with indigenous yeast to dryness. Malolactic fermentation was long and cool, also using indigenous flora. At completion of ML each barrel was put on a lees stirring regimen until the perfect harmony and palate weight was achieved." -  winery
