The Character

Tasting Notes Sourced from the original 1969 planting of the Rued clone of Chardonnay, which is known for its somewhat tropical aromatics - some even refer to it as the Muscat clone of Chardonnay. Brilliant light straw in color with beautiful aromatics: green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, minerality, crème brulee, and a touch of toasty French Oak. Across the palate it’s layered with flavors similar to the aromas, with crisp acidity in a fresh, mouthwatering Chablis-like style (non-malolactic). The minerality of place comes through from the rocky hillside vineyard in the Russian River Valley

Overall Aromatic & mouthwatering

Mouthfeel Fresh & layered

Aromas Green apple, pineapple & crème brulee with clean minerality & a touch of toasty oak

The Story

La Sirena Chardonnay is back! Our first vintage back in 2016 was such a hit, we decided to make it again for the 2019 vintage. I have made Chardonnay a number of times for my clients over the years, but I was not compelled to make my own until a special vineyard site became available in 2016. Well-known vineyard manager Ulises Valdez (who sadly passed away in 2018) had a few tons available from the Rued family original vineyard planted in 1969. I was enticed to have a look, and was immediately taken with the magnificent old vines, their large gnarly trunks and arms. I couldn’t resist working with such a special site, and La Sirena Chardonnay was born.
