Overview of the Wine
The Moshin Vineyards story is one of unlikely beginnings, tenacious hard work, and a passion for winemaking. Founder Rick Moshin went from being a San Jose State University math instructor to a pioneer of Russian River winemaking. He literally built the brand from the ground up—without the assistance of outside investors – keeping ownership solely within his family. To this day, you can still find Rick tending vineyards, tasting barrels in the cellar, conducting virtual wine events, building furniture for the tasting room, or repairing the plumbing. He was DIY way before it was a thing!
Our Chardonnay is created from local vineyards within the Russian River Valley appellation in close proximity to our historic Wohler Bridge. Using native yeast, we fermented and aged the wine in oak barrels (5% new) sur lies for nine months. This wine went thru 100% malolactic fermentation.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A very pretty Chardonnay with delicate floral notes - flavors and aromas of pineapple, gardenia and lemon curd. Very subtle oak influence and creaminess with a bright and balanced tropical finish. Classic varietal character with a light touch - this lovely white wine will appeal to many!
