Notes of ripe apple and honeydew melon greet and are delicately perfumed by notes of freesia and citrus blossom.  Brighter notes of lime and Meyer lemon match the refreshing acidity of this wine, balanced by a creamy palate and leading to a finish that will continue to lengthen in the coming months.  A wonderfully textured and vibrant Chardonnay displaying the best Carneros has to offer.

Harvest timing was essential, allowing for full flavor development, acid balance, and optimum ripeness. Once the desired flavors were at their peak, the fruit was hand harvested in the early cold morning and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was then slowly fermented by both native and specially selected yeast in a combination of new and twice used French oak barrels and small stainless steel drums. Upon dryness, weekly barrel stirring of the lees commenced to increase the complexity of the aromas and mouthfeel. Only 35% of the secondary malolactic fermentation was allowed, thus giving the final wine’s profile a beautiful balance between richness, intense fruit and crisp acidity in the long finish as we desired.

A layered nose of brioche, citrus blossom, oyster shell, and quince come together in a bright and inviting introduction. The palate is focused with bright acidity and medium to full bodied, showing plenty of length and notes of crushed rock, brioche, Bartlett pear and lemon curd along the way.

Riley's Rows is the project of Eric Flanagan's daughter Riley. Riley grew up with Flanagan Wines, and is now off on her own!
 
The 2015 Riley’s Rows Chardonnay NorthCoast has an expressive nose that encompasses both tropical fruits and barrel notes. The vintage character means that this wine shows a riper fruit profile. Pear and stone fruits like peach and apricot predominatera ther than the citrus notes we typically see in cooler years.

The key to the wine is the bright acidity that ties everything together. This is a great example of what top Russian River Chardonnay sites can produce when wine making is focused on balance.

We aged the wine in Atelier Centre France and Chassin cooperage for 14 months with 50% new barrels. The Platt site, like Grand Cru Chablis sites, is expressive of the vineyard terrior and reflective of a balanced barrel regime. I believe in letting each site express itself and that means that each of our wines has a unique barrel program and wine chemistry that reflect that particular site in a given vintage.
