Gehricke Russian River Chardonnay‚Äč

This wine opens up beautifully with aromas of citrus blossoms, fresh ginger and hints of graham cracker. Crisp on the front palate, it broadens out to reveal a full mouth feel with notes of mango, peach and apricot. The finish is long and elegant, highlighted by toasted oak flavors and vibrant acidity.

Tasting Notes:
“Honey-chamomile is a soothing scent and mellows into the anise and soft wheat toast on the palate. A succulent body of white flowers bloom in mid-taste, while apple-caramel pastry on the finish is charming. An added hint of stonyness lends another dimension.” -Tasting Panel (93 Points).
