On February 3, 2010, Demeter USA, the only certification agent for Biodynamic® farms in the United States, certified the 17-acre estate vineyard and garden at DeLoach Vineyards, fully compliant with their standards for Demeter Biodynamic status. As one of only sixty-four wineries or vineyards in the U.S. with Demeter certified Biodynamic estates vineyards, DeLoach is among an elite group of sustainable wine grape growers committed to farming in parallel with the Earth’s natural cycles.
Our Old Wente Clone and Clone 809 vineyard blocks provided the fruit for this wine. After whole cluster pressing, the juice underwent native yeast fermentation and lees stirring. Extending the barrel aging time in French oak to 14 months increased the complexity and rich depth while still retaining the delicate fruit components of this elegant Chardonnay.
Our Russian River Valley Estate Vineyard Chardonnay glows a brilliant golden-yellow in the glass before opening with aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, fuji apples and pear. It is light, but weighty, with a full mouthfeel that coats the palate and a balanced texture that is complemented by bright acidity. This is a complex Chardonnay that will age extremely well.
