Rabbit Ridge California Chardonnay

Rabbit Ridge California Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $8.00 per bottle

Description: We selected grapes from premium growing regions of California to produce our Barrel Cuvee Chardonnay. This Chardonnay is perfect with seafood, poultry and pasta dishes, yet balanced with soft, concentrated fruit, making it a delightful wine to enjoy by the glass. Anticipate pleasant flavors of apple and pear, combined with toasty vanilla from oak aging. In keeping with the concept of the Rabbit Ridge Barrel Cuvee line, this Chardonnay is made to be enjoyed immediately.

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.
