Thomas George Estates Chardonnay Sons and Daughters Ranch Russian River Valley 2014
This Chardonnay was sourced entirely from the winery's Sons & Daughters Ranch, located at the border of the Russian River Valley and Chalk Hill AVA's. Extra care went into the making of this ripe style, which shows beautiful notes of stone fruit, quince and lime, with honeydew melon and cantaloupe on the palate. This particular Chardonnay was aged in 59% stainless steel tank and 41% concrete egg, with no malolactic conversion. In other words, its bright fruit flavors and crisp acidity have not been diminished by oak and processing. This is a great option for Chardonnay lovers that are ready to graduate from oaky, buttery styles.
