Apple cream comes to mind when tipping this wine to your nose.
Vanilla with a touch of toast are fully woven into this wine’s deep perfume resulting in prominence and stature.
On the palate, this Chardonnay is medium-bodied and delicate, showing hints of apple, ripened pear, and mineral crisp. Light tannins and the subtle oak leave you with a refreshing finish on a warm day.

Silva Road Vineyard is owned by Ethan Silva and his sister, Josephine and is located in the middle reaches of the Redwood Valley AVA, at an elevation of 975 feet. Here, the Silva Family grows organically farmed Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon on a rocky bench above the headwaters of the Russian River. In contrast to surrounding growing regions, the Redwood Valley is considerably cooler than other areas in the Ukiah valley, producing Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon that slowly matures with elegance and pedigree.
