Hartford Court Three Virtues Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Three Virtues Vineyards Chardonnay is handcrafted from three vineyards located in the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA. These vineyards are planted with in three distinct neighborhoods within the Russian River Valley: Middle Reach, Laguna Ridge and Green Valley. This vintage of Hartford Court Three Virtues Chardonnay reflects the combination of these three areas showing great complexity and purity of fruit.
This opulent wine speaks to each of the neighborhoods that the grapes grow within. Middle Reach: Exotic honeysuckle aromatics and rich, almost oily texture. Laguna Ridge: Ripe pear and apple aromas and flavors. Green Valley: citrus and focused fruit characters are framed by nice acidity. The finished wine shows all these characters as well as a round and rich sense from barrel fermentation and very subtle butterscotch aromas from malolactic fermentation.
