Whether it’s an eager, wagging tail or the comfort of a curled up body at your feet, dogs provide the epitome of simple pleasures. Our Chardonnay has the same effect, soliciting immense satisfaction with its straightforward character, perfectly balanced for accessibility and reward. With soft, supple nature, the wine opens with ripe melon, orange blossom and spice aromas. On the palate, flavors evolve into fresh, tropical fruit and crisp, green apples. Partial oak aging imparts depth and layers, leaving nutty, vanilla accents to join the lemon meringue finish. Pair this quaffable wine with a fleshy white fish, served in a burre blanc with grilled veggies or salad.
This Chardonnay solicits immense satisfaction with its straightforward character, perfectly balanced for accessibility and reward.
Our Chardonnay was picked at the peak of ripeness. To retain the bright, fruit-driven profile, we fermented the grapes in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures. Half of the wine went through secondary (malolactic) fermentation to lend a nice creamy roundness to the bright, lifted aromatics and crisp fruit character inherent in the grapes. Extended sur lie aging added additional weight and depth, creating a Chardonnay that is both supple and refreshing.
