Buehler Russian River Valley Chardonnay, 2015

17.00

The Buehler family has been running their vineyards and winery at the base of Howell Mountain for thirty six years around three basic principles -- honest, quality, and family. Situated 5 miles East of St. Helena, the 300 acre estate and family vineyards consist mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon, with some old vine Zinfandel and some Chardonnay. The family believes that minimal intervention winemaking, as well as strict vineyard management and low yields create the best grapes, which translate into exceptional wine under the careful watch of head winemaker David Cronin. This Chardonnay comes from two separate vineyards - Wood and River. With moderate use of new French Oak, as well as sur lie aging, battonage and full malolactic fermentation, this Chardonnay shows complexity its complexity immediately out of the bottle. The floral and stone fruit aromas waft from the glass, showing notes of daisy petals and ripe yellow peach, followed by a wet stone minerality that acts to balance the juicy fruit notes. With a tangy acid and a creamy, full body, this wine drinks well now and will continue to do so for the next five years.
