WineO Mark Review

It seems many of my favorite Chardonnays are from the Russian River. And this is an estate Chardonnay, a white wine that’s plenty nuanced with fresh, floral, and citrus notes – overall, full of flavor.

On the glass, this wine has a golden color with a bouquet of green apples, limes, orange zest, some white flowers, and a touch of minerality.

This wine has great depth with high acidity and an amazing focus on its citrus and floral flavors. It’s rich and dry on the palate, has a smooth texture and has a long slightly salty finish. You can taste green apples, pears, melons, pineapples, and lemon peels followed by hints of vanilla, honey, oak, and herbs. 

It’s bright, fresh, and full of energy which is a perfect drink for a hot summer day.
