Clos du Bois Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay'03, Sonoma County, USA

A delicious creamy style Chardonnay from the well-know Winery Clos du Bois.

Technical Data:: 100% Chardonnay. The wine was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. Aging took place in a combination of new (44%), one- and two-year-old French oak barrels for nine months.

Description:Brilliant silver straw yellow color. On the nose the wine shows rich aromas of ripe apples and pears with hints of stone fruit and citrus. The intense forward fruit flavors are bright and juicy with ripe apples, pears and fig highlighted by nuances of toffee and vanilla. The creamy mouthfeel is a result of hand stirring the lees during barrel aging.
