2021 Helena View Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Experience the enchantment of our 2021 Helena View Russian River Valley Chardonnay, gracing the glass with a captivating medium-yellow hue. The bouquet immediately captivates, revealing a delightful array of aromatics like pineapple, subtly warm butter (sans overt butteriness), lychee, banana, and the alluring essence of honeysuckle. Stone fruit notes, including peach and yellow nectarine, further enhance the aromatic complexity. The satiny texture glides gracefully, akin to figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi on ice, while balanced acidity complements the supple experience, showcasing rich flavors of peach, red apple, and mandarin. A truly enjoyable wine, best savored on its own, but should the moment call for a perfect pairing, we recommend indulging in the Thai spicy pork liver salad, beneath a warm evening in Bangkok, perhaps by a rooftop pool, adding a touch of magic to the experience.
