2009 Knights Bridge Chardonnay Alder Springs

Situated in Mendocino at elevations as high as 2,700 feet, the Alder Springs Vineyards are planted on steep hillsides with a combination of Scott Henry and Smart Dyson trellising systems with vine density up to 3,300 vines/acre.

Vivid aromas of pear, apple, white peach and minerality abound in this wine with subtle toasty vanilla notes and a hint of mint. Golden in color, this wine is rich in the entry with ripe fruit flavors integrated well with sweet oak components leading to a long and vibrant finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Vivid aromas of pear, apple, white peach and minerality abound in this wine with subtle toasty vanilla notes and a hint of mint. Golden in color, this wine is rich in the entry with ripe fruit flavors integrated well with sweet oak components leading to a long and vibrant finish.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested at 24º brix, pressed cold at the winery, and allowed to settle for 24 hours in tank. The juice was transferred to 100% new Saury and Francoise Frere barrels to ferment. After fermentation the barrels were stirred every week for over a year. The wine is bottled un-fined and un-filtered.
Food Pairing Notes
Savor this wine with sautéed Panko-crusted scallops with minted spring rolls and a grilled lemon relish or with grilled Pacific salmon, summer vegetables and green papaya salad.
