J. McFarland Tribute 2011 Chardonnay

This wine is 100% from own root vines planted 40 years ago by Jerry McFarland. River Road Vineyard has stood the test of time, buffeted by the cold, high winds that come off the Monterey Bay's deep, cold water canyon. The fruit for this wine was harvested late October 2011 at 24.5% BRIX. These old own-root vines go down deep into the rocky soils to pick-up flavors unique to age. The cold region 1 growing areas in Gonzales' Santa Lucia Highlands allows the fruit to ripen slowly to create layers of luscious fruit flavors...as it opens in your glass you'll be treated to a floral nose combined with a hint of spicy lemon...a buttery viscosity...and a finish that goes on and on. Peter's winemaking and the McFarlands legendary grape growing in the Santa Lucia Highlands makes an excellent Burgundian style Chardonnay.
