WINE REVIEW: Gehricke 2021 Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County ($29)


The days are longer and the grass is greener, meaning spring is finally here! In the spirit of the new season, we’d like to introduce you to the latest spring releases from Gehricke Wines.

Fourth generation vintner August Sebastiani developed Gehricke as an homage to the local Sonoma countryside he grew up exploring and the dusty roads that led to forgotten vineyards and properties. Gehricke is a tribute to one such famous road, and the small-lot, minimal-intervention wines celebrate those hidden pockets of vineyards throughout Sonoma.

· Gehricke 2021 Russian River Valley Chardonnay – Aromas of fresh spring flowers intermingle with hints of ripe melons, tropical fruits, and baking spices. On the palate, notes of mango, guava, white peach and grapefruit are layered with touches of fresh lemon tart, dried coconut, and roasted macadamia nuts. A smooth texture and vibrant acidity add to the long, crisp finish.

Gehricke Wines are nationally available and featured at the winery’s newly reopened tasting room in the historic 3 Badge firehouse in downtown Sonoma.
