About The Vice 2021 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley

The Vice produces this Chardonnay with grapes from an organically farmed hillside vineyard at 300 feet of elevation above sea level in the Laguna Ridge neighborhood of Russian River Valley. Goldridge soil, with a micro-climate primarily influenced by the Pacific Ocean. Quite a bit of daily fog with significant diurnal shift of 40F degrees during the growing season.

The 2021 vintage will be remembered for record low yields with intensely-flavored, small sized berries and a smooth and uneventful harvest season. The grapes are harvested and demstemmed by hand. After destemming, the grapes are gently pressed and then natural yeast fermentation takes place. 35% of the wine underwent Malo-lactic fermentation in barrels. The rest was fermented in a stainless-steel tank under controlled temperature and racked immediately after fermentation finished. The new wine was then transferred to a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels where it rested 9 months until bottling.

This Chardonnay has a wide range of aromas including lemon curd, honeydew melon, pear and spice. It is Medium-bodied and begins minerally on the palate and gains persistence and amplitude with roasted almond and macadamia nut flavors. It has a very fresh and uplifting acidity while it remains delicate and elegant throughout its lengthy finish.
