Paul Hobbs Ross Station Chardonnay 2016

SKU 2730


Situated in the coastal influenced Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley, the vineyard is blanketed by morning and evening fog providing moderating diurnal temperatures that bring an average daytime low of 44°F and high of 75°F. With these favorable conditions, a radiant golden straw chardonnay emerges with expressive aromas of white peach, brioche, and crème brûlée. The mineral core is lifted on the palate, embraced by flavors of yellow apple and tropical tones, leading to a long, cool saline finish. Food Pairing: Try with grilled peaches with Burrata di Bufala and basil, Croque Madame alongside tossed young lettuces with a classic French vinaigrette, or fried rice with sugar snap peas, bacon and egg.

Wine SpectatorShows a mastery of rich fruit and jazzy new oak flavors, with smoky, toasty notes and pure fig, melon, anise and nectarine elements, sailing along on the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate features notes of key lime pie, lemon meringue and white peaches with a subtext of clotted cream, brioche, toasted almonds and a waft of cinnamon. Full-bodied, concentrated and oh-so-decadent in the mouth, the satiny textured palate features bags of citrus and spice flavors with a very long, invigorating finish.
