2004 Unoaked Chardonnay

2004 Unoaked Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: There is something truly remarkable about the heavy black clay soil of our Chardonnay vineyard. The fruit from these vines shows outstanding richness and intensity of flavour. Our 2004 Unoaked Chardonnay is opulent, complex and shows impressive balance. Great as a stand alone sipper, this wine also matches well with fish, lightly seasoned white meats or a nice Camembert cheese.

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.
