2011 Chateau St. Jean Fume Blanc La Petite Etoile Russian River

2011 Chateau St. Jean Fume Blanc La Petite Etoile Russian River

Inviting aromas of lemon-lime citrus, ripe cantaloupe melon, and notes of fresh green tea leaves open the wine. The nose leads to an expres sive palate with flavors of green apple, kiwi fruit and subtle notes of spice. The rich, full mouthfeel is well-balanced with refreshing acidity and a pleasant finish.

Vineyard Notes: The grapes come from the 44-acre La Petite Etoile vineyard near Windsor. This vineyard was originally planted in 1975, farmed by Chateau St. Jean since 1978 and actually purchased by the winery in 1988. The rolling hillside vineyard in the Russian River Valley consists of shallow, gravelly and sandy loam soils with tight clay subsoil. A small portion of the Sauvignon Blanc has been replanted to the musque selection and is included in the final blend. The cooler-than-normal 2011 growing season p
Winemaker Notes: Classic winemaking techniques were used in crafting this Fumé Blanc. The majority (70%) of the Sauvignon Blanc was barrel-fermented, with the remainder fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh fruit characters unique to the Russian River Valley. The barrel portion was aged for eight months in small French oak barrels (43% new) adding complexity and creaminess to the wine. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation.
