These vines grow under the thoughtful watch of the Ross Family farmhouse, built in the late 1850's. Originally planted to grape vines and peach trees, the property's gently rolling hills provide a nurturing environment for our vines. Stylish and refined, this opalescent chardonnay boasts aromas of green apple, key lime pie, white peach, honeysuckle and toasted brioche. The texture on the palate is fresh and vibrant with notes of red apple and jasmine echoing through a very lengthy finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chardonnay Ross Station Estate (their first vintage of this cuvée) comes from the Mt. Eden clone planted in a cool area of the Green Valley section of Russian River, next to the Reuling Vineyard that Mark Aubert made famous. It offers up notes of lemon blossom, white peach, pineapple, honey and subtle oak. With great acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and stunning length (it has a 40+-second finish), this profound Chardonnay should drink well for 7-10 years.
