2019 Luke's Grove

Chardonnay

RUSSIAN RIVER VLYsonoma county


ALLOCATION LIST: $41.40

Tasting Notes

An early display of intense flavor and character make it is easy to adore the 2019 Chardonnays. Never shy to begin with, Luke’s Grove is a wine of opulence and largesse. Now that Stiling vineyard is optimally dry farmed, we find the wonderfully floral Rued clone notched up in intensity.

Broadly proportioned, this is an unapologetic Russian River Valley Chardonnay. The naturally concentrated, dense core of baked apple and pear is lifted with classic tiny white flower accents, lemon oil and a toasty hazelnut finish.

Small amounts of high-toned juice from Green Acres and Flora Marie compliment Stiling vineyard by providing a touch of extra freshness and verve. While Luke’s is undoubtedly a big wine, we make sure it remains in harmony with itself. Enjoy it now and sock some away for future glory!
