Pronounced aromas of ripe orchard fruits, golden pear and apple are balanced with praline, almond and spice. The palate is replete with ripe tree fruit character, baking spices, vanilla and minerality. Round and textured, this wine is balanced by precise, integrated acidity that carries on the long finish.
As one of the most popular grapes for growing and consuming, Chardonnay can be made in a wide range of styles. These styles can vary from a sparkling Blanc de Blanc, or fresh fermented in stainless steel, to rich and creamy white wine aged in oak barrels. Notable regions for this grape include Chablis or Burgundy in France, Central Coast, Napa, and Sonoma in CA, and Western Australia.
When pairing with food, consider the characteristics of your wine first. No brainer pairing options include seafood, salads, and white meat. Chardonnay, with its vast versatility, is everyone’s best friend.
