The 2015 Davis Bynum Chardonnay has beautiful aromas of baked Fuji apples, lemon custard, and white flowers. On the palate, the wine opens up with toasty brioche, hazelnut, and baking spices, with a lush finish that is balanced with acidity and a rich creaminess. Enjoy this Chardonnay with creamy cheeses, vegetable risotto or grilled halibut.

The Russian River Valley received warm, dry weather in January, and induced the vines into an early bud break at River West. At that point, we knew there would be a good chance of an early harvest that Fall. Periods of coolness were punctuated by heat spikes in late June, causing a little burn on the skins, and a heatwave in mid-August, which resulted in grape sugars climbing quickly. Harvest started very early, on August 13.
