in 2003 with his brothers.

Planted in the early 90’s, this is the coolest vineyard site in the Russian River Valley, located at Lee Martinelli Sr.’s home ranch in Forestville, CA. After riding around with Lee in his pick-up truck when we visited his Woolsey Road, Zio Tony, and River Road Vineyards, he decided to take Patrick to this gem. Lee kept this particular vineyard in his back pocket until they hit it off. They did, and we think you’ll enjoy the ride as well.

Bright and light golden-yellow in color. Exotic and sweet vanilla bean aromatics backed by pear and kiwi with a slight orange peel. The palate resonates with texture and depth with minerality to match. Flavors of roasted plantains, red delicious apple, and lime frame the wine for a long yet soft finish.

Owner and winemaker Patrick Krutz hails from Mississippi, but moved to Carmel to work at the Cheese Shop and follow his dream of getting in to the wine business. The winery was founded Read More...
in 2003 with his brothers.

Jon & Barbara Phillips cultivate 6 acres of Chardonnay at their estate located on the east side of Olivet Road in the Russian River Valley. The vineyard enjoys warm days followed by cool nights, which naturally develops and maintains great acidity in grapes. This is the first vintage Krutz Family has worked with from this vineyard, and it is certainly on pace to become the main source for their Magnolia Series Chardonnay.

Pale, transparent, light yellow in color. Aromatics scream of bright, crisp, citrus, lime, pineapple, and kumquat. The palate confirms the aromatics along with green apple and spicy lemon zest. This wine is held together with bright acid with the perfect amount of body and structure from neutral cooperage. Built to enjoy in its youth.

There are delicious flavors of pear, white peach and butterscotch intermingling on the palette and a long lingering finish that goes farther than any wine at this price should. This wine is more than just value, as it shows true depth and personality. Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse takes great care in ensuring that this wine is balanced and a marvelous stand out in the great sea of value-priced Chardonnay.

Just a quick whiff reveals great purity, with huge tropical and floral notes. In light of our current economic climate, La Crema Winery hits the mark on quality and availability, all the while delivering it prudently. Oh! And we should mention that Robert Parker said, This Chardonnay / Pinot Noir specialist should receive rave notices from bargain hunters looking for a top-flight Chardonnay that is complex, rich, and widely available. So we are by no means the only people who understand this winery's significance.

$17.99
Quantity

Lafond is located in the Santa Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County, an ideal environment for growing intensely flavored, full-bodied Chardonnay. This AVA is distinguished Read More...
by a very cool and long growing season created by a convergence of unusual geography in this part of California. It is not uncommon to see high scores given to Chardonnays that are more modest in pricepoint from this region. A blend of fruit from two neighboring vineyards to Lafond, the 2010 Chardonnay "SRH" is Winemaker Bruce McGuire's selection to showcase the ripe, concentrated Chardonnay for which the Santa Rita Hills AVA is known.

Lafond's new blocks of Chardonnay are now in production, and have four additional clones along with their original Wente clone, which was first planted over 25 years ago. The new clones add to the complexity of the wineand introduce subtle flavors which add to its enjoyment and underline the remarkable qualities of the Santa Rita Hills 'terroir'.
The 2012 La Fond is a beautiful pale yellow color. Aromas of lemon meringue, melon tones, and honeysuckle. A full-bodied chard that is concentrated and packs a fantastic fresh finish.

maximize the flavor of each particular block or clone, and to ensure balance in the finished wine. The juice was cold settled, then racked off heavy lees and sent directly to barrel, where the wine underwent sur lie aging, helping to provide richness and a delicate nutty characteristic. After primary fermentation, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, imparting a full and creamy mouthfeel. Lastly, the wine was aged for over twelve months in French and American oak barrels" ~ Winery notes

ridge of the Sonoma Mountain range overlooking Los Carneros. The Petaluma Gap is characterized as a very cool, windy, fog influenced area. The Lorenzo Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley and is 100% Wente clone. The soil has a high percentage of clay, which helps give this wine an element of minerality in the flavor profile.

The 2010 Damaris Reserve displays light gold hues with aromas of white pear, lime zest, crystallized ginger, chalk, and hints of vanilla, honey, and cookie dough. This medium bodied Chardonnay is dry and balanced with moderate acidity that increases on the palate.

While Levendi may be a newcomer, the minds behind it aren't. Jim Gianulias has been active in the Napa Valley's vintner's community for more than 25 years. And the peripatetic winemaker, Read More...
Alison Green Doran, has traveled the globe to hone her craft, including a stint under the tutelage of mentor Andre Tchelistcheff. We think the comments of our Hi-Time staff are right on: There's a little butter going on, but you don't end up at the dairy. A bit of wood, but this wine doesn't serve up discordant chapters. It's more of a harmonious poetic blend when it comes to the essentials of fruit, acidity, texture and oak. Rich and opulent with wonderful aromas and flavors of pineapple, peach, apple, vanilla and butterscotch, enveloped within a seductively silky smooth mouthfeel.

LIQUID FARM 12 CH WHITE HILL
$37.95

Liquid Farm's "White Hill" bottling is the leaner and more Chablisiane of their two Chardonnay bottlings. Comprised of fruit from some of the best vineyards in the area (Bent Rock, Zotovich, Huber, Read More...
Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak, Rita's Crown, and Radian), White Hill highlights the unique salinity that comes through in the ancient soils of Santa Rita Hills. The style of this wine will always be racier and predominately neutral barrel fermentation. Its profile is that of mineral, yellow peach, fresh Asian pear, salinity, linen, candied ginger, and lavender cream.

STEPHEN TANZER'S INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 91 POINTS - "(made from fruit grown in the Bent Rock, Zotovich, Huber, Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak, Rita's Crown and Radian vineyards; aged mostly in neutral oak, with 18% in stainless steel): Light, bright gold. Spicy pear, Meyer lemon, honeysuckle and a subtle touch of smoky lees on the nose. Deep, sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are complicated by sweet butter and mineral notes, with a note of anise building with air. The incisive, long finish strongly echoes the floral and mineral qualities."

Rob Lloyd (who is the former winemaker for Rombauer) has produced an unabashed California Chardonnay. The grapes come from two Sangiacomo Vineyard sites, Home Ranch and Green Acres Read More...
in the Carneros region. Picked at their peak of ripeness, the grapes are gently pressed, settled, and moved to barrels to be cold fermented. The room is kept at a very low temperature keeping the wine from fermenting too rapidly and thus losing its aromatics. The wine slowly undergoes primary and secondary fermentation for nime months before being racked off its primary lees and bottled.
