Fragrant, creamy, fresh.
The berries for this Chardonnay were plucked from Oliver's Vista Lago Vineyard. One-half was fermented in French barriques with the remaining half in stainless steel. The wine in barrel then underwent malolactic fermentation to enhance the texture further while the stainless-steel portion maintained the natural acidity.
It's a fresh style, fruit-forward with melon and golden apples, honey, vanilla, and acacia flower aromas. It has a creaminess on the tongue but is more lively in character. Pristine fruit and citrus with hints of apple butter and toasted spice on the finish. Pair: lobster, cedar planked salmon, creamy chicken dishes, creamy fettucini, grilled white fish, breaded and fried oysters, roast chicken or squash ravioli.
