"A superbly balanced Chardonnay from a single vineyard in Sonoma's Russian River Valley. Rued Vineyard is a unique piece of property, lying just five miles from the ocean. I love the 'sea spray' minerality here, which adds an intriguing tension to the tactile palate. A very foodie wine." - Cristie Kerr

The 2019 Rued Vineyard Chardonnay opens with an intense nose of lemon bar, guava, flint, honeysuckle, and corn tortilla which evolves into hazelnut, lemon and orange zest, and Crème brûlée. The gorgeous, vibrant palate begins and ends with minerality, bookending bartlett pear, green olive, and dried sage. This wine has terrific tension and drive, with freshness and flavors carrying beyond the long finish.
