Winemakers Notes:

Allen Wines Chardonnay is 100% single vineyard and single varietal produced from grapes grown in the Russian River Valley. This wine is crisp and well balanced and is aged in all new French Oak for 15 months. Allen Wines Chardonnay is unfiltered and exhibits luscious notes of apples, pears, and a hint of vanilla.
