From the winery: "Lush, immediately approachable and undeniably delicious, Luke’s Grove is often our Chardonnay ambassador for EK newbies and long timers alike. While we continue to fine-tune it in the vineyards and the cellar, it remains a quintessential Russian River Valley illustration of this varietal and our most widely popular since we introduced it way back in 2004.
Now mostly comprised of Stiling Vineyard fruit, we chose to pick this vineyard in several stages to provide both ripeness and natural acidity. A small 4% addition of Fallenleaf Vineyard (new to the blend) lends the Old Wente clone’s custardy bass notes while another 4% of Green Acres Vineyard Hyde clone contributes both texture and verve.
Overall, the 2015 follows previous vintages for Luke’s Grove; Classic Russian River Chardonnay richness and a sunny, fruit-driven disposition. However, we find a bit more minerally stoniness on the finish than in the past and the final wine manages to be both hedonistic and refined at the same time."
