I forget what I pay for some of these new ones I’ve never had. Opened and tasted before I looked it up. Not bad for $15.00 I was hoping I didn’t pay over $30.00 Winery notes, Rooted in the vision of winemaker Derek Rohlffs, Bravium is a study in patience and a mindful connection between land and wine. It's all about the connection between vineyard and what goes in the glass. "Terrior is a gift." Winery note: "This bright and balanced wine perfectly reflects the cool-climate Russian River Valley vineyard where it was grown. Brilliant yellow-gold in color, with fresh tree and tropical fruit aromas that are highlighted by candied apple, ripe peach, pineapple, brioche, lemon oil, white flowers, and sea spray. The wine opens with gorgeous sweet apple and pineapple fruit flavors, with vanilla and honeycomb notes. A finely-textured, invigorating mouthfeel, with a generous mid-palate and medium-plus acidity, is framed by crisp fruit and subtle oak-derived flavors. Hints of herbal tea give way to flinty minerality and refreshing acidity. The complex flavors linger on the finish of this racy and lively Chardonnay."

Straw with green edges, brilliant. Lemon meringue with some vanilla and toasty oak notes. Upright fresh acid driven. An old world style with new world fruit:)
