Wind Racer

Very limited production, this wine is simply beautiful - 
elegant yet powerful.
Move over, Rombauer!

Forgive us if our timing for this one is a bit off, even though it’s the second day of spring a little faith and vision are required to appreciate this wine offering.

Yes, better weather is coming and this full-bodied Chardonnay is just the ticket to transition to spring cooking and time in the great outdoors.

93+ Points Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Chardonnay Russian River Valley has lemongrass, orange blossoms and cedar notes over a core of white peaches, grapefruit and green mango. Medium to full-bodied with a gorgeously creamy textured and mouth-filling stone fruit and citrus layers, it has a racy backbone and a very long finish, with some toasty notes coming through."

90 Points The Wine Enthusiast

"Aged in French oak for more than a year (20% new), this is a full-bodied and layered wine. Strong aromas of French butter and baguette dominate the nose. The midpalate offers more brightness, revealing high-toned accents of apple blossom, lemon and mango wrapped in tart acidity before returning to the richness of crème brûlée on the close." 

Our Thoughts.........

 Bright aromas of meaty apple, shortbread, and lemon zest couple with lovely flavors of Asian pear, marzipan, and crème brûlée to create a rich wine that proudly boasts fresh acids and a long finish. The classic flavors and profile of the Russian River Valley shine through this beautifully integrated wine. Pair with seared or roast shellfish like lobster and scallops.  Also simply roast chicken, dishes that include wild mushrooms, slow roast tomatoes, white truffles or fish, especially Sea bass and anything with fennel. Yum!

A bit about Wind Racer.......

 Wind Racer brings two world-class growing regions into the spotlight, head to head in a race for the ultimate in sophisticated pleasure. Launched in 2006, co-proprietors Barbara Banke and Peggy Furth focus exclusively on their favorite maritime appellations – for Barbara, Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley and for Peggy, Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Inspired by an antique weather vane found in rural Kentucky, Wind Racer unites their shared passion for equestrian sports and cool-climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
