The 2020 Screen Door Cellars Chardonnay from the Green Valley in the Russian River opens up with an explosion for aroma. A bright, vibrant, yellow color in the glass precludes aromas of lemon curd, apricot, crème brûlée, wet stone, lime zest and flint.
Half of this wine has been concrete egg fermented and the other half fermented in French oak barrels, creating a mouthfeel and flavor that is both rich and full. A smooth entry leads to bright citrus acidity with a balanced creamy long finish. This is a complex and complete Chardonnay that will pair perfectly with good company on your front porch (and with most any meal).
