2013 Gary Farrell Skin Fermented Russian River Valley Chardonnay

14.0% alc., pH 3.43, TA 0.66, 47 cases, $50 (wine club offering). Released August 2015. Sourced from Cornerstone Vineyard owned by Jim Pratt, an esteemed grower. Clone 4. · Moderately light golden yellow color and cloudy in the glass. A very stylistic and unusual wine that will appeal to those looking for a different angle. Aromas of lemon-lime, sap and willow bark lead to flavors of citrus, peach and stem-like notes. Challenging to describe properly, but suffice it to say that it was more instructive than pleasing for me although it tended to grow on me over time in the glass. Score: 89.
