2014 Reserve Chardonnay - Francis Ford Coppola Winery

2014 Reserve Chardonnay

Russian River Valley, CA
9 months; 40% new French oak, 60% 1-year-old French oak
Dutton Ranch

This vintage, we sourced our fruit from Dutton Ranch, which is located less than ten miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is comprised of more than 75 separate vineyards planted in the coolest areas of the appellation, where fog rolls in every afternoon and lowers the temperature by 30-40 degrees each evening. This climate pattern not only allows the fruit to ripen more slowly and accumulate more flavor concentration, it helps the grapes retain an ideal amount of natural acidity, which is a vital to creating complex Chardonnay.
