Defined by the idea of movement, Migration is dedicated to exploring Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions to create wines that highlight lush fruit, bright acidity and impeccably balanced oak. To craft our flagship Chardonnay, this exploration took us to California’s Russian River Valley, where layers of ocean fog cool the vines that grow in the region’s famous Goldridge sandy loam soils. Reflecting this world-class terroir, this vibrant and sophisticated Chardonnay combines white flower aromatics with enticing lemon custard and stone fruit flavors.

Food Pairing:
* Roasted Delicata Squash Soup with Parsnips and Walnut Creme Fraiche
* Fresh Cranberry Sauce with Orange

Winemaker Notes
Offering all of the layered complexity and lush concentration that make great Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley so sought-after, this enticing wine displays gorgeous aromas of peach, nectarine, Fuji apple, citrus blossom and honeysuckle. On the palate, vibrant stone fruit and citrus flavors are supported by hints of vanilla, graham cracker and apricot with seamless acidity providing freshness, poise and precision.
Production
The 2013 harvest was early, even and excellent with a warm dry spring brought an early bud break and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set. In the weeks after Labor Day, a moderate heat event followed by a period of perfect weather created a dream scenario for end-of-season ripening. Rain was not a factor, and for the second vintage in a row, the quality of the grapes was exceptional throughout Russian River Valley.
