Chardonnay “Day in the Country”

Chardonnay “Day in the Country” Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: Day in the Country is a world apart, comparable only to the great French Chablis and the few natural Chardonnays that now exist in the United States. It is not about oak, oak, and more oak. It is about flavors unmasked, unleashed! The natural, wondrous flavors of Chardonnay, fresh flavors you might actually experience for the first time! Day in the Country is the ultimate expression of terroir!

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.
