"So appealing, the 2013 De Loach Vineyards Russian River Valley Chardonnay just brings you into its web. Aromatic and alluring, soft and smooth from start to finish, among the best in the genre of Chardonnay. Light straw, green color; fruity, apple and bright candy, nice and quite aromatic, pleasing; medium bodied, rounded on the palate; candied apple flavors, with a note of flowers; medium finish; smooth, layered aftertaste. 90 points."

|DeLoach Vineyards has been a pioneering producer of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel in the Russian River Valley since 1975. As a winegrowing region, The Russian River Valley is known as “America’s Burgundy,” a distinction in which DeLoach has been an important factor. The winery has received numerous accolades and 90+ ratings. The Wine Spectator’s James Laube calls DeLoach “one of California’s best producers of chardonnay,” and Wine and Spirits has proclaimed DeLoach “Winery of the Year” TWELVE times, including 2011 and 2012.
Our goal at DeLoach is to produce exceptional wines that spotlight the personality of the Russian River Valley and to passionately seek understanding of the valley’s unique terroir, ensuring the wines are terroir driven and distinct. We successfully do this in a socially responsible and environmentally sensitive way. The estate vineyards and garden are certified organic and Biodynamic, and in the cellar we use traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques such as open top wood fermentors, native yeast fermentations and hand punch downs.
