2018 Proprietors Reserve

Chardonnay

Russian River Valley 

Release Notes

Over the years, Rutz Cellars Russian River Valley Chardonnay, has become a stalwart companion to our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, in the stable of Rutz Burgundian wines. Our Russian River Valley fruit gives this wine a great backbone of natural acidity and structure, which allows it to age gracefully.


With five generations of French viniculture heritage, we strive to create a wine which has a crisp and cool limestone minerality character, that’s embedded from the earth. When aged in French Allier and Troncais oak, this slight touch of oak is well integrated into the wine. Never big nor bold, it is well balanced, and balance turns into finesse!
