Buehler Vineyards is a family run winery located on a mountain top just 5 miles east of St Helena in the Napa Valley. Now run by the fourth generation of the family, the estate spans 121 hectares and is mostly planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.
This is how the winery describe this Chardonnay – “Our 2017 Russian River Chardonnay is born from two vineyards within the Russian River appellation: Wood Vineyard, located on River Rd and River Vineyard, located in the heart of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley on East Side Road. The floral, mineral, and lime aromas and steely structure of the River Vineyard are complemented by the peach and apricot aromas and more fleshy structure of the Wood Vineyard… Balance and proportion best describe the character of our 2017 Russian River Chardonnay; it displays abundant floral/ stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but the natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.”
