Gehricke Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2014
The inaugural Chardonnay release from Gehricke offers bright aromas of lime oil and citrus, freshly cut Granny Smith apples and a hint of cream soda. The palate is crisp and inviting with green melon and citrus flavors with a touch of leesiness and a kiss of oak on the finish. This is an elegant wine with fine construction. A wine that will continue to develop with time, gaining body and creaminess on the palate.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine reminds one of salty apple pie, with big, drying oak and a whiff of potpourri. Given nine months in 25% new French oak, it holds on to that toasty taste through the finish, with a sprinkling of bitter lemon.
