2019 Cattleya Call to Adventure Chardonnay Russian River Valley | Sonoma County California 750ml

...comes from the Russian River Valley, yet it still has an almost Sonoma Coast-like focus and sense of minerality. Beautiful stone fruits, crushed rock, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted bread give way to a medium to full-bodied Chardonnay with beautiful purity of fruit, building richness, and a wonderful sense of freshness that carries through to the finish. It's another beautiful, layered, rich but also fresh and pure Chardonnay that will have a solid decade of longevity. | 95 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

Starting my own winery marked the beginning of a new adventure: find vineyards from whose grapes I could craft exceptional wine. The Pratt Vineyard was the beginning of my quest to unearth these gems - unique sites that would speak to my soul. With this single bottling, I was able to showcase my approach to Chardonnay.
The Pratt Vineyard is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley, a world-renowned AVA in California. The appellation benefits from a coastal influence and a cool climate, both favorable for making outstanding wines from Burgundian varieties. Only four rows of Clone 15 were planted about 20 years ago by Jim Pratt. Thanks to the intensity and complexity of the fruit produced from this site, this Cattleya Chardonnay reflects both the typicity and exceptional quality of white wines we can produce in Sonoma County from this delicate variety.
This Russian River Chardonnay beckons you away from the comfortable cuvees you've known before. Call to Adventure is an invitation to seek the unknown where the promise of delight is just a sip away if you are brave enough to take the first step...redolent of that hazy line when spring becomes summer: perfumed honeysuckle, ripe mandarin, Meyer lemon, and honeydew melon. With a long finish and round, generous texture, no one can resist the Call to Adventure. 100 cases produced. | Bibiana Gonzales Rave Pisoni for Cattleya Wines
