Highlighting lush, layered flavors, bright acidity and impeccably balanced French oak, Migration is dedicated to crafting wines from the finest cool-climate winegrowing regions. This dedication led us to establish our estate vineyard in the heart of the legendary Russian River Valley. This wine is a selection of the best blocks and barrels of wine from this exceptional site. With notes of citrus blossom, white flower and stone fruit, this wine is layered with flavor and aroma while light and refreshing on the palate.

Wine Profile

Production Notes
Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Winemaker Notes
Like sunshine in a bottle, the Running Creek Vineyard Chardonnay opens with radiant notes of Fuji apple, stone fruit, and zesty citrus. On the palate it is energetic and inviting, with bright citrus and juicy orchard fruit flavors carrying the wine to an elegantly lavish finish.
Production
While the 2020 North Coast growing season began with a mild winter and less than average rainfall, there was enough precipitation to provide ample soil moisture. After an early and ideal budbreak, temperate weather throughout spring and summer produced balanced canopies and steady shoot growth, with relatively small berries. Mid-August brought a week of temperatures over 100º F, providing a final push towards optimal ripeness for our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and select Pinot Noir vineyards. While late-season wildfires in Northern California brought logistical challenges, we were able to successfully pick our North Coast vineyards during a very busy, truncated harvest, resulting in beautifully pure and aromatic white wines, and lush, spicy and concentrated reds.
