Balletto Russian River Chardonnay 2017
$71.99 $66.99 price per bottle
This light-straw colored wine is both complex and elegant, showing its cool-climate heritage with concentrated flavors and a dark and lasting texture that has perfectly bright citrus tones for balance.
It opens with warm spices, ripe pear and lemon aromas. It's distinctly Chardonnay. The various aromas overlap and mingle, producing an ever-changing bouquet that is the hallmark of our Chardonnay. New oak has been used sparingly to enhance the wine with subtle toasted and vanilla aromas, rather than dominate the aroma profile.
The texture and balance are spot on, making it one of those wines that draws you in for another sip. The finish lasts for several minutes and is both tart and creamy with lingering stone fruit and creme brulee. Slight tannins accentuate and compliment the lush texture.
