Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Our Chardonnay has captured the essence of the Chardonnay grape. Our Chardonnay was 100% barrel fermented in French oak barrels, and only 50 % was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. You will experience both the flavor of the fruit and an underling taste of that buttery flavor which is characteristic of many Chardonnay wines. There is good acidity to this rich, ripe wine that will never overpower a meal. It is a well-balanced wine that has a light, fruity finish that will seduce your tongue. We know this wine will satisfy any lover of Chardonnay. Appellation - Fair Play

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.
