Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Folie à Deux 2015 Chardonnay is opulent and alluring. Indicative of its coolclimate origins, this wine has a bright acidity beneath notes of toasted pear strudel, apple, apricot and vanilla—all framed by a richly textured palate. This wine is medium-bodied with a memorable crispness. For an excellent pairing, serve the 2015 Folie à Deux Chardonnay with baked salmon topped with herbs of dill and fresh-squeezed lemon, or try it alongside white mushroom truffle pasta.
Production Notes
2015 was a very warm and therefore early year, which meant the grapes were physiologically ripe at a lower sugar level, resulting in lower than average alcohol levels. Although the alcohol level is low, the flavors in this Chardonnay are representative of fully ripe, developed fruit. The Russian River Valley’s wide range of alluvial soils—composed primarily of gravel, loam and sand—provides essential water drainage while retaining sufficient moisture and nutrients to support the vines during the appellation’s long growing season. The grapes in this Chardonnay ripened slowly on the vine, developing intense varietal flavors, while retaining a bright and vibrant acidity.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit for this Chardonnay was selected from seven premier vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in 28% stainless steel and 72% oak barrels to maintain bright acidity, add complexity and showcase the variety’s rich fruit flavors. The wine was then aged in its fermentation vessels for nearly six months.
Production
Some of the most globally renowned Chardonnay is made from Russian River Valley fruit. The grapes for the 2015 Folie à Deux Chardonnay were sourced from prime vineyards in this acclaimed AVA. Cooling fog from the Pacific Ocean blankets the Russian River Valley’s vineyards, reducing temperatures by 35 to 40 degrees at night and fostering a long, even growing season.
