EL MOLINO 2011 CHARDONNAY RUTHERFORD 750mL

El Molino was established back in 1871. The winery, along with the historic label, was resurrected in 1981 by Reg Oliver who focused on incomparable Chardonnay and distinctive Pinot from an appellation admittedly more famed for Cabernet Sauvignon. He left a legacy of environmental stewardship and enthusiasm for Burgundy varietals that has not been lost on his daughter Lily and her husband, Jon Berlin (Jon & Lily pictured top right). Lilly moved to the winery with the family when she was nine, and since child labor was never frowned upon, there was a lot to be learned by the age-old tradition of apprenticeship under her father. Lily uses these time-honored techniques to fashion a Chardonnay of impeccable balance that can age for decades! Lemon verbena, quince, Bartlett pear and Tahitian lime are at the forefront of aromas, supported by wet stone, white peach, jasmine flowers and bakerís yeast. With aeration, a slightly riper, dense, and fresh profile emerges with pure citrus and floral flavors, good viscosity, loads of extract, and a silky texture.
