LangeTwins Chardonnay

LangeTwins Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Crafted from grapes harvested in both the Delta Region and the Lodi Appellation, our Chardonnay has ripe, tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and banana complemented by a creamy, textured palate with a long finish from sur-lie aging. A subtle blending of Viognier adds layers of spice and perfume, and native yeast and barrel fermentation finishes the warm style.

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.
