Tasting Notes: Remove any preconceptions you have about Chardonnay because this isn’t your parent’s buttery Chard! As our 2022 Chardonnay was aged in a mix of stainless steel and neutral oak, it is vibrant, fresh & fruity. With delicious aromas of lemon and green apple, high acidity & a dry palate, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Food Pairings: With a high acidity, this wine works great as a palate cleanser and works well with creamy sauces. For simple perfection, pair with grilled salmon filets finished with a little butter and a bright splash of lemon.

Vinification

Slusser Vineyard is located in the middle of reach of the Russian River Valley. It’s a 50 acre vineyard composed of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc vines. Planted in 1992, the vineyard is planted in Cortina gravelly loam soil, which seldom needs irrigation. The Russian River Valley has a chactertiscally cool climate (thanks to the coastal fog!) which helps it produce some of the world’s best Chardonnays & Pinot Noirs.
