About Hartford Court 2018 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

The 2018 Hartford Court Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sourced from a collection of small vineyards located throughout the Russian River Valley AVA. These vineyards are a combination of Estate properties such as Jennifer’s, Fog Dance, Bellflower, and Arrendell as well as a handful of neighbors’ vineyards located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. The sites express the essence of the Russian River Valley by showcasing the best of the sub-regions within the AVA.

The winemaking is focused on artisan techniques such as hand harvesting at night or early morning, whole cluster pressing and using indigenous yeast barrel fermentations in all French oak barrels (25% new).The wine aged for 10 months, weekly lees stirring through malolactic fermentation and was bottled with no fining and minimal filtration.

Wine Advocate scored this 91+ points saying "Already bottled, the 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley sings of fresh Bosc pears, white peaches and pink grapefruit with hints of powdered ginger, shaved almonds and white pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate has great vibrancy and juiciness with effortless fruit expression and lovely savory layers on the finish. I wish all Chardonnays at this price point tasted this good!"

Wine Spectator scored this 92 points saying "Luscious, rich and full of creamy white fruit flavors flanked by buttery accents. Spicy plushness lingers into the finish, with some honeyed notes. Drink now through 2024."
