San Lorenzo Winery Journeyman Chardonnay Russian River 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||San Lorenzo Winery|
Journeyman’s 2021 Chardonnay is a blend of extraordinary vineyards: Zio Tony and the famed Ritchie Vineyard. Carefully harvesting select portions of these famed sites in the middle of the night and at the peak of maturation, we are able to achieve great depth of flavor from this noble grape. Flavor accents of apple, chablis-like limestone, stone fruit and white blossoms accented with fine, subtle French oak tannins surround the creamy palate of this complex wine. The result of our tedious process of carefully selected vineyards, the night-time harvest, and the concrete egg and barrel fermentation create a wine of structured elegance.
Stunning, with fleshy peach, apricot and Fuji apple flavors that are juicy, generous and precise, with hints of fennel seed, lemon oil, lemongrass and candied ginger that linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 440 cases made.
