Features

2008 Inspiration Vineyards Estate Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 750ml 4-Pack

Welcome to another Burgundian vintage of this wine! The Inspiration Chardonnay is distinctive, reflecting the Russian River Appellation where it’s grown. Warm days and cool nights help develop good acid; the slow barrel fermentation in neutral French oak along with weekly lees stirring creates a wonderful mouth feel while also preserving the fruity characteristics of this wine. Allowed to naturally go through maloactic fermentation, you will find a perfect balance of acid and fruit with vanilla on the nose followed by some minerality and an abundance of pears and apples on the finish; like the Inspiration red wines, this wine is unfiltered.

Fermentation / Cellaring: Fermented and surlees aged in two year old French oak barrels for 11 months. The wine and its sediment was stirred, employing a French technique called “batonage” for 9 of the 11 months that the wine was being cellared.

Winery Details

Inspiration Vineyards and Winery

Owner:
Barbara & Jon Phillips
Founded:
2002
Location:
Sonoma County, CA
Barbara and I moved to Sonoma County 10 years ago because of our passion for great wine.  After teaching about wine for 15 years, I was driven to follow my heart and become a wine maker.  All of our friends kept telling us we were an Inspiration because we followed our dreams.  Through hard work and determination, I was able to leave my fulltime corporate life three years ago and focus on making fantastic, balanced, food-friendly wines and offer them at a reasonable price.

Today, our winery produces approximately 1500 cases of wine annually; our average lot sizes are around 200 cases and can be as small at 20 cases, like our 100 year old “front yard” Zinfandel.
