Citrus, spiced, fresh.
This Chardonnay was predominantly sourced (75%) from Vista Lago Vineyard in Oliver, with small additions from other locations in Oliver. One-half was fermented in French barriques, with the remaining 50% in stainless steel. The wine in barrel then underwent malolactic fermentation to enhance the texture further.
Notes of golden apples, apricot, pineapple and charred honey are layered with brown butter, toasted spice, coriander and chamomile. It has a fresh palate laden with golden fruit, citrus peel, buttered toast and wet stone. Spice clings to the finish.
Pair: lobster, cedar planked salmon, creamy chicken dishes, creamy fettucini, grilled white fish, breaded and fried oysters, roast chicken or squash ravioli.
