Olema Chardonnay 2019, Sonoma County$19.00
The Olema Chardonnay, made by Amici Cellars, is a blend of premier vineyards in Sonoma County. A portion of the blend was aged in barrels for rich, creamy texture with the remainder fermented in stainless steel, which preserves the bright, vibrant fruit and crispness. The 2019 Olema Chardonnay finds the ideal balance between freshness and weight. Aromas of lime custard, white peach and roasted grains carry into the palate laden with pear, pineapple and hints of baking spice. The medium-bodied wine has a lovely creaminess balanced by bright acidity and a strong fruit core, with a finish leaning more toward lemon zest, lime juice and a long, mouthwatering finish. 92 Points James Suckling
Dehlinger Chardonnay 2019, Russian River Valley, CA$48.00
This wine is marked by lively green apple and citrus flavors accompanied by zesty acidity, ending clean and complex. A nice refreshing Chardonnay for any occasion. Dehlinger has long been recognized for its Russian River Valley Chardonnays, which are known for their balance, fresh acidity, and unctuous flavor.
Dehlinger produces a single Estate Chardonnay bottling each vintage, originating from eight acres of Chardonnay vines planted between 1975 and 1988. These old vines, grown in the region’s classic Goldridge series soils, are grafted to the California heritage “Wente” clone, which produces small clusters and berries and has a notable minerality and almost oily viscosity.
Dehlinger’s Chardonnays are crafted using traditional techniques which preserve the flavor and elegance of the variety. At harvest, the grapes are picked at night, brought cold into the winery and “whole cluster pressed” to extract the highest quality juice. From there, the juice is fermented in French oak barrels using native yeasts. The wine gains further complexity through malolactic fermentation and a year of aging on the lees. Dehlinger has been bottling its Chardonnays “Unfiltered” since the late 1990s in order to capture the full flavor potential and most pleasing texture possible.
