2016 Martin Ray Joseph Belli Chardonnay
Known for producing opulent fruit, this inaugural vintage of our Joseph Belli bottling is classic chardonnay at its best. There is an intensity of fruit, full of granny smith apple, baked pear, and subtle quince. Notes of peony give way to mandarin and marzipan, layered white currant and lemon zest. Staying true to its Russian River roots, it is plentiful with acidity, but balanced, with creamy texture and fresh fruit finish.
