Additional Wine Information

Story
Alysian is headed up by Gary Farrell, one of America’s masters of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Farrell became a Sonoma legend early in his career-first as the winemaker at Davis Bynum and later as the talent behind top estates like Rochioli and Limerick Lane. In 1982, he began releasing Pinot Noir under his own name, and in 1998 he opened what would become one of the region’s top Pinot Noir producers. He sold his winery in 2004 to return to his first love-crafting small-lot wines from Sonoma’s most coveted vineyards. This rare Chardonnay comes from the Cresta Ridge Vineyard, a site in the Russian River Valley’s coolest and most challenging subzone, tiny Green Valley. Ripening grapes in this foggy coastal slice of Sonoma is a nail-biting exercise but pays off in remarkable wines with pure fruit flavors. The Taurin Block, from which this bottling comes, is a small section of the vineyard that typically produces the best grapes in a given year.
Sense
Give the wine a little time in glass to let its oak-derived aromas-vanilla, butterscotch and spicy wood-recede and its sweet apple and lemon chiffon notes emerge.
Savor
While creamy and rich, this white has pure bright lemon and apple flavors, with notes of spicy vanilla and butterscotch adding a luxurious accent.
Serve
Chardonnay’s subtle flavors are easily overwhelmed by spicy and pungent foods, so serve the Alysian Chardonnay with mild preparations of shellfish, fish or white meats like chicken or veal. The wine’s plush texture will complement pâté or butter and cream sauces; its acidity will also cut the richness of these foods. Visit williams-sonoma.com for recipes such as Salmon and Corn Chowder; Pappardelle with Lobster, Leeks and White Truffle Oil; and Braised Chicken with Mushrooms.
Serving Instructions
Serve chilled: refrigerate the bottle for 30 minutes before serving.
