Green Valley is a bit of an insider secret in the larger Russian River Valley. This small, special sub-AVA provided the backbone of acidity in Ryo-fu, along with subtle fruit aromas. Heintz Ranch and Searby Vineyards make up the body of the wine, infusing Ryo-fu with elegant stone fruit and old-world character. This is one of the most Chablis-like Chardonnays to come out of Freeman, more mineral than fruit-driven. Decant for half an hour to allow the layers to really shine.
