Olivet Lane Estate Chardonnay
Russian River Valley, 2006

2008 S0NOMA COUNTY HARVEST FAIR SILVER MEDAL AWARD WINNER. Pellegrini Family Vineyards does it again. This wine is always produced from what Bob Pellegrini feels is the best selection of fruit grown in their Russian River Valley vineyard. Its flavors are rich, yet delicate, with nuances of butterscotch and pineapple in the finish. Fermented in 100% French oak barrels that come mostly from Francois Freres of Saint-Romain in Burgundy. The oak provides the neatly nutty, toasty character of the wine, and does not overwhelm – just as you want a Chardonnay to be: fruit first then oak in the background to show off the fruit a little more. A wine with firm acidity and will continue to develop with bottle age.
Serving Suggestions
A classic French Burgundy-style of Chardonnay, meant to be served with Paté de Fois Gras, puff pastries, oysters – anything rich and buttery and on your “to-eat” list for the New Year. If you’re looking for a bang for your buck, this gem is it.
