2018 Sonoma Chardonnay
Pure Chardonnay aged in 50% new french oak, this is Russell Bevan's first vintage of Elyse Sonoma Chardonnay.
Our 2018 Chardonnay is well balanced, clean and crisp on the palate with bright flavors of stone fruit, citrus, creme brulee, and quince. This wine is layered with complex flavors that are lifted by vibrant acidity leading to a long, refreshing finish with just a hint of French oak. Crafted by Russell Bevan.
This Chardonnay is sourced from two vineyards in Sonoma County – Simpatico in Bennett Valley and Smith in Dry Creek Valley. Both vineyards are located in unusually cool pockets of Sonoma and their unique microclimates make them very well suited to produce the type of Chardonnay we love – opulent yet elegant, somewhat steely, with bright fresh fruit and crisp acidity.
