Robin K wines are owned and founded by winemaker Bill Knuttel. Named after his wife "Robin Knuttel" Robin K wines are exceptional wines at great values. Bill's approach to winemaking hinges on an artistic approach, letting instinct and experience set the tone while minimizing the use of technology. Bill was the winemaker at Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards & Winery for seven years and at Saintsbury for thirteen years. His wines are some of the most respected in California. The 2010 Robin K Chardonnay Russian River Valley fruit is hand-picked and whole cluster pressed to insure delicate handling and maximum flavor retention. It spends 15 months in Frenck oak of which 25% is new. It shows concentrated flavors of ripe red apple, tropical fruits, lemon spice and apple custard. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation and spends time on its lees resulting in a creamy finish that gives it versatility with a wide range of dishes, but pairings with seafood and white meats will be especially rewarded.
