Selections Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Our 2005 Selections Chardonnay has a bright, crisp nose with aromas of white peaches, honey and vanilla beans. The round, soft mouth is slightly buttery with toasty hints of oak and honeysuckle. It has a long, smooth, well-structured finish, perfect for any occasion.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
