Rare new release from Martinelli. The Three Sisters Vineyard Chardonnay is their most rare and coveted white. Limited. 94 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Martinelli's 2017 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard is bold, luscious and so expressive. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and chamomile all flesh out in this ample, creamy Chardonnay. All the Martinelli signatures come through loud and clear in this striking, alluring Chardonnay." Robert Parker: "...One of the great families of Northern California, and of course, one of the highest quality producers, the Martinellis – and rather remarkably so – only estate-bottle 15% of their production from over 300 acres of beautifully situated vineyards in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast. No doubt Helen Turley, who worked at Martinelli and mentored its winemaking team, left a profound influence on the quality of the Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, Syrahs and Zinfandels, a fact that can’t be overstated. The Chardonnays all go through full malolactic fermentation and tend to see about 50% new oak. The Pinot Noirs are always 100% destemmed and largely spend no longer than ten months in about 60% new French oak."
