McIlroy Cellars releases new vintages every year. Our current releases feature Chardonnay from our estate vineyard, which was replanted in 2009. Chardonnay is the perfect grape for the complex soils and natural character of Aquarius Ranch. And our wines feature plenty of ripe fruit with a rich mouth-feel and bright acidity for balance. We are currently sold out of our library wines, which feature a range of other varietals. But we are excited to produce a new vintage of our well-loved Pinot Noir that was released this summer.
Our wines are currently for sale at various establishments around the Bay Area and in Los Angeles. Please email us for a list of locations.
2016 Russian River Valley Chardonnay
This blend marries several outstanding vineyards from around the Russian River Valley, taking advantage of varied climates, with each vineyard contributing its unique site characteristics to the extended layers of richness and complexity. Full, ripe fruit balanced with a juicy freshness. Delicious with rich fish like salmon and lobster or pasta and soups.
2016 Aquarius Ranch Chardonnay
Every year we select only the finest grapes from our estate Aquarius Ranch Vineyard to create our Signature Edition wines. Aquarius Ranch Vineyard is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley, nestled between the Russian River and an old-growth redwood forest, creating the perfect climate for Chardonnay. These grapes produce the richness, balance, and complexity characteristic of the finest Chardonnays. This vintage is bright and fruity with spicy aromas.
