“This liquid gold Addax Chardonnay AK (Owner’s Reserve) 2019 is UTRA Big & Buttery yet simultaneously gloriously refreshing thanks to the overall balance of bright fruit. Enchanting notes of vanilla cream (from the new French oak barrel) and Hawaiian macadamia nuts come alive on the palate intertwined with ripe peaches, pineapple, minerals, lemon oil, and honeysuckle on the memorable finish. This ultra-impressive new Chardonnay is 100% unfiltered and aged in new French Oak with indigenous wild yeast for 19 months. The result is a powerhouse effort that combines the age-ability of a noteworthy "grand cru" Burgundy with the full throttle Russian River fruit California collectors will adore. Aging potential for 5-7 years, peaking around 2026 in our estimate. Bravo.” - California Wine Advisors (9/1/21)

“The 2019 Chardonnay AK Cuvee is winemaker Russell Bevan's barrel selection blend of roughly three barrels of Ritchie vineyard and two barrels of Rued vineyard. It prances out of the glass with showy notes of fresh apricots, nutmeg and mandarin peel, over a core of pear tart, shaved ginger and beeswax. The full-bodied, concentrated palate is full-on opulent, featuring layers of satin-textured stone fruit and baking spice flavors, finishing with epic length. So. Good.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
