Description: Delightful aromas of pear and green apple give way to notes of luscious mango and litchi. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, complex flavors of fleshy peach and pineapple glide into a smooth and satisfyingly crisp finish, accented by notes of lemon and flint. This wine pairs nicely with any firm-fleshed fish or fowl. Serve slightly chilled with chicken piccata or salmon in creamy dill sauce.

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.
