Gallo Signature Series Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2010

Gallo Signature Series Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Description: About the Wine: Our 2010 Gallo Signature Series Chardonnay has aromas of sweet smoke, with integrated notes of oak and fruit on the palate. A true expression of the Russian River Valley, this wine has aromas of sweet vanilla and freshly baked bread, combined with flavors of crisp apple, lemon meringue and ginger. Winemaking Notes: For our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, we blended a variety of clones, including Clones 96, 15 and 44, which were handpicked from our historic Laguna Ranch and Del Rio vineyards. The grapes were gently whole‚Äźcluster pressed, with press cuts taken by taste to maximize the flavor of each particular block or clone. The grapes were then cold settled and fermented in barrel. This Chardonnay underwent malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging to give it a rich, creamy mouthfeel. The wine was aged for 13 months in a mixture of French and American oak barrels with a medium toast.
