Vaughn Duffy Chardonnay 2017
Russian River Valley
This ultra-small production Chardonnay from the Bay Area's own Matt Duffy and Sara Vaughn is a Cali Chardonnay lover's dream! The wine has all the hallmarks of balanced, super drinkable RRV Chardonnay.
Generous amounts of lemon curd, mandarin, Marcona almond, and hazelnut in the glass, kept in check with bright Meyer lemon acidity and a dry, clean finish. This is very much a balanced, more nuanced style of Chardonnay that's flavor packed but finishes as clean as a cold river.
After a career in wine in San Francisco and Sausalito, Matt and Sara started the label with little more than a U-Haul and a dream of making wine. A stint at Siduri under the guidance of the inimitable Adam Lee led to the founding of their eponymous label.
Their wines have long been a fixture of cafés, wine bars, and fine dining throughout California, typically available for purchase only through their website or mailing list. We're proud and excited to offer up a limited amount of their 2017 Chardonnay!
