Francis Coppola – Director’s Cut – Chardonnay

ABV: 13.9%

Available Size: 750 ml

Case: 12 Bottles

Description

Using only Russian River Valley fruit, we crush the grapes whole-cluster and ferment entirely in French oak barrels to produce a wine with a seductive, round texture and notes of sweet vanilla. This technique also serves to highlight the green apple, honeysuckle and citrus flavors, which are the hallmark of Russian River vineyards.

Our 2015 Director’s Cut Chardonnay presents lively aromas of citrus and tropical fruits along with pretty floral notes and an edge of minerals that evolves on the palate. You’ll find luscious flavors of Meyer lemon, quince, and passion fruit up front, but as the wine opens up you get the impression of pear crisp, which delivers fragrant spice notes of cardamom, nutmeg and vanilla bean. Richly textured with good palate density, there is a fresh quality to this year’s fruit and a sophisticated toastiness from the wood.
