Peugh Vineyard is medium bodied and deep on the palate, with striking intensity kept fresh by lively acidity. Candied lemon, green apple, brioche, herb and citrus flowers are nicely folded together. There is lovely complexity here, not to mention striking depth. The 70 year-old, head trained vines’ massive root system and canopy managed the heat spikes exceptionally, producing a unique old vine expression of Russian River Chardonnay.

The 2018 Chardonnay Peugh comes from a vineyard originally planted in 1887 and grafted to Chardonnay in 1944. It was made with 20% new Austrian oak and has bright notions of petrichor, lime peel, green herbs and green pineapple with honeyed notes in the background. The palate is medium-bodied and satiny, swelling with savory flavors that are refreshed by mineral accents and lively acidity, and it finishes very long. The dynamic dichotomy of brightness and savory bass tones is compelling and provides a hint of what this may be like with another five years in bottle.
