WINEMAKER NOTES
Bravium Chardonnay vineyards are located in the cool-climate of the western portion of California’s Russian River Valley. Two vineyards comprise this wine, located in the small towns of Forestville and Occidental. Both vineyards are regularly blanketed by fog and a view of the Pacific Ocean, with one of them resting directly adjacent to Russian River. The vineyards are planted to a number of Chardonnay selections, including Dijon and Wente vine material which - combined with the large diurnal shift - allows for acidity to be retained during ripening. Shallow soils also allow for ripening to occur at a relatively low degree Brix. The combination of these terroir attributes provide prototypical Chardonnay character and hallmark Bravium balance.

Alcohol: 13.5%
90 POINTS - "This is a versatile, well-balanced, well-made wine. It's medium to full bodied and offers tempting cream and vanilla aromas, mouthfilling pear and vanilla flavors and a rich texture supported by good acidity." - Wine Enthusiast

Socially Rated 4+ / 5 ⭐
This bright and balanced wine perfectly reflects the cool-climate Russian River Valley vineyards where it was grown. Brilliant medium-gold color, with honey, pear, apple, pineapple, lemon oil, and white flowers aromas, and a judicious framing of vanillin oak. The wine opens with crisp pineapple and mango fruit flavors that turn into apple and pastry on the full-bodied mid-palate. A finely-textured, invigorating mouthfeel, with medium acidity, turns into flinty minerality on the ripe and bouncy finish of this lively Chardonnay.
