The 2014 Raeburn Chardonnay shows an array of complex fruit tones ranging from pear and Gravenstein apple to nectarine. The fruit is beautifully complemented with toasted oak, vanilla and hints of Crème Brûlée with a balanced and elegant finish.
The name Raeburn, traces its origins to Olde English, and translates to "the stream where one drinks." The Russian River Valley is a unique sliver of the world that produces Chardonnay of class and distinction. At Raeburn there is a clear synergistic relationship between the land that yields beautiful Chardonnay fruit and its caretakers. Stewards of a distinct land that rewards us with high quality fruit, the Russian River Valley's watershed provides a unique habitat for flora and fauna, including Coho salmon, Steelhead trout, herons, egrets and deer - oh, and perfect grapes.
