Picket Fence Chardonnay
Russion River Valley in Green Valley vineyard has consistent warm days and cool evenings creating the ideal climate for growing Burgundian varietals.
The Pinot Noir grapes are hand harvested at night, which helps retain the freshness and acidity so crucial to well balanced Pinot Noir.
Grapes are then sorted, gently pressed and the juice fermented in small, open-top tanks. Wine ages in 50% new French oak to give wine warmth and richness.
Picket fence Pinot Noir has an elegant, fruit forward style with great intensity, spice and richness of cherry fruit. On the palate you taste a rich fruit complemented with velvety texture – a great example of Russian River Pinot Noir.
