This 2019 Chardonnay is a delightful and elegant wine that impresses with its apple cream aroma on the nose. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and delicate, showcasing subtle hints of apple, ripened pear, and a mineral crispness that lingers long after the last sip. The flavors are well-balanced, with the fruitiness complementing the refreshing acidity and the mineral undertones adding a touch of complexity. This Chardonnay is perfect for pairing with light dishes, such as seafood or poultry, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at any occasion.

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.
