Villa Emile Chardonnay

Villa Emile Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $9.95 per bottle

Description: For the 2004 Villa Emile Chardonnay we return to the world-renown grapegrowing region of California’s Monterey County. Warm days produce Chardonnay with luscious citrus and tropical fruit character while the cool nights contribute to a well-balanced acidity. The 2004 vintage shows inviting fresh-picked citrus, apple, and pear aromas and flavors complemented on the palate by a subtle touch of toasty oak. While pairing perfectly with fish and seafood, this wine is equally at home with poultry dishes and pastas.

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.
