Brilliant platinum color of the 2017 Mirror Chardonnay is matched by the brightness of its aromas: fresh orange peel and pineapple deepening to savory peach and coconut. A crisp touch to the tongue, with pleasing tropical accents rounding
out the mid-palate. Its lengthy and focused finish evidences the late-ripening Chardonnay grapes, and their long-hanging life on the vine in cool-climate Petaluma Gap.
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.
