Sonoma Chardonnay Comes Alive

The April 2021 issue of Wine Enthusiast features Gary Farrell Winery in a story focused on Sonoma Chardonnay. Writer Virginie Boone notes that “California Chardonnay, specifically from Sonoma, is finally having its moment.” The piece offers great context to the evolution of the region as a premier wine growing region, citing Gary Farrell Winery as one of the pioneers.

The winery’s Russian River Selection Chardonnay 2018 (95 Pts) is one of the recommended wines. Boone notes, “This wine offers such tremendous value and quality, it should be on everyone’s go-to list for Russian River Valley Chardonnay.” Continuing, “Lime, fig and grapefruit rind flavors ride along a lifted character of crushed stone texture and bright acidity. It’s impressive from the detailed start to the lengthy finish.”
