2021 Chardonnay - Kelby James Russell

Available:  In Stock $17.95
Size: 750 ml

Kelby James Russell is the former Winemaker at Red Newt Cellars.  For almost a decade he has produced exceptional wines under his signature Winemaker Series inspired by different wine regions in the world close to Kelby's heart, including Riesling, Cabernet Franc and Dry Rose of Cabernet Franc.

An exciting addition to the Kelby James Russell line-up, the very first Chardonnay! Chardonnay may be as unfairly maligned a grape as Riesling in its own, albeit far more popular, way. Oaky and buttery this wine is not, however. The KJR Chardonnay is a celebration of how lovely and pure the flavors can be of this grape in a cool climate. Allowed to oxidize as a juice to highlight its savory qualities, fermented on full solids for a flinty edge, and aged in older French oak puncheons to round out the wine, this Chardonnay is a fitting standard bearer for its grape and for The Knoll at Lahoma Vineyard.
