Three Amigos Chardonnay

Three Amigos Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: RSV’s 2002 single-vineyard Chardonnay has a bit more boisterous character than the 2001. Our organically farmed Three Amigos Vineyard produces beautifully expressive fruit that we gently guide into full flavored, impeccably balanced wine. Aromas leap from the glass with suggestions of apple, nectarine and vanilla. The refreshing crisp edge of the wine provides firm structure to support expansive flavors of citrus, apple, pear and almond. The finish is luscious and never ending… a natural beauty.

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.
