As a pioneering producer and winegrower in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, DeLoach Vineyards has been experimenting with and perfecting the best combinations of soil, rootstock, and clones for over three decades. In 2003, the Boisset family brought two generations of sustainable winemaking experience from Burgundy, France to California’s Russian River Valley. They planted the vineyards with cover crops in order to revitalize the soil and in the meantime, DeLoach partnered with winegrowers equally dedicated to and passionate about eco-friendly farming practices and the production of high-quality wines.
In 2010, Demeter USA, the only certification agent for Biodynamic® farms in the United States, certified the 17-acre estate vineyard and garden at DeLoach Vineyards, fully compliant with their standards for Demeter Biodynamic status. As one of less than 100 wineries or vineyards in the U.S. with Demeter certified Biodynamic estate vineyards, DeLoach is among an elite group of sustainable wine grape growers committed to farming in parallel with the Earths natural cycles. Wines made from the estate’s grapes are organic and biodynamic; some wines in the Deloach portfolio are made from purchased grapes that may not have been grown according to organic / biodynamic standards.
Aromas of warm apple, toasted almonds and savory undertones. The medium-bodied palate is round and creamy with fresh and juicy stone fruit flavors with notes of brioche and a touch of citrus. The finish is long and refreshing. Enjoy this soft and creamy Chardonnay with seafood, corn chowder, macaroni and cheese, Turkey dinner.
This is a certified organic and biodynamic wine. The Chardonnay grapes were whole cluster pressed. The juice underwent native yeast fermentation and was aged in 19% new French oak for 10 months to increase the complexity and rich depth of the wine while still retaining the delicate fruit components.
