2018 Gary Farrell "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1504044 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine offers such tremendous value and quality - it should be on everyone’s go-to list for Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Lime, fig and grapefruit rind flavors ride along a lifted character of crushed stone texture and bright acidity. This wine is impressive from the detailed start to the lengthy finish. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This wine has the youthful insistence of a newly released Chablis, with tart cider-apple acidity and grassy notes. It’s creamy and blunt in its undeveloped intensity, formidable in its tension. Give this a year in bottle; it should develop with elegance. (JG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

This is a stunningly well made bottle of Chardonnay. It's integration and balance are perfect, all elements are in tune with one another. Aromas and flavors of a delicious freshly baked pear tart. Savory hints of a dew cover meadow, yellow flowers and hazelnut. Lovely ripe orchard fruit notes but just the right amount of tartness to balance the caramelized notes. Vibrant, crisp acidity teases out persistent flavors giving length and freshness. It's focused and yet very flavorful; has weight and texture and yet remains almost ethereal and energetic on the palate. For me, it's right up there with the best and most faithful renditions of Russian River Chardonnay and yet the price point is considerably lower than almost all of it's qualitative peers. This is an astounding value in beautifully executed Chardonnay.
