This Chardonnay is reminiscent of a Meursault. Classic hints of lemon, lemon curd, baking spice with a hint of vanilla. Aged in 30% new French barriques there is a perfectly balanced textural tone throughout the wine, with plenty of mineral cut to back it up.
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.
