Anthill Farms Peugh Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, USA 2019

VINTAGE : 2019


REGION/APPELLATION : California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley

VARIETALS : Chardonnay 

This head-trained vineyard sits smack dab in the middle of the Russian River Valley, spread out on the plains that make up the northwestern outskirts of Santa Rosa. The faded brown soils, known as Huichica loam, offer an excellent mix of low fertility and rapid drainage. Most notable about the site, however, is the age of the vines: we don’t know it exactly, but the best indication is that they were planted in the early 1940s, making these some of the oldest producing Chardonnay in the state.

Gold-green in color. Expressive, spicy aromas of lemon oil, apple, and wet stone. Generous aromatics of fruit and textural appeal on the palate are focused by the lively Peugh acidity. There is an exceptionally long-lasting finish of orchard fruit, savory almond, and sea salt, showcasing all the depth and complexity of these 75-year-old vines. Compelling and delicious texture and tension that will continue to evolve for a dozen years.
