2010 Russian River Valley Chardonnay

Frei Brothers Reserve

Our Terroir- The Russian River Valley

The signature cooling maritime influences of the Russian River Valley serve to balance its warm days with cool, refreshing evenings and fog-cloaked mornings. This unique macroclimate allows for the slow and even maturation of our fruit, developing distinct flavors in our wines which reflect this great Sonoma terroir.

Winemaking that Captures Our Terroir

At Frei Brothers Winery, we craft wines in a gentle, traditional style enhanced by the use of modern techniques to produce a wine that is both varietally accurate and reflective of the terroir of the Russian River Valley. Our Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed to eliminate bitterness and maximize fresh fruit characters. The wine completed malolactic fermentation, which resulted in a plush texture and deep, layered flavors that express the terroir of the Russian River Valley.

Tasting Note

Our 2010 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a soft and complex reflection of one of Sonoma’s most renowned cool-climate regions. This wine displays flavors of green apple, orange zest and apple pie, complemented by notes of butter and toast. The rich, nutty flavors in this Chardonnay lead to a silky finish and a plush mouthfeel.
