Harlequin Chardonnay

Harlequin Reserve Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: Harlequin is the masked, multicolored symbol of fun, music and laughter that characterizes our Reserve Chardonnay. The bouquet is a wonderfully synthesis of fruits and delicate nuances of oak. The taste is mouth-wateringly fresh with almost contradictory smoothness;luxurious flavors of candied apples,pears, pineapple and grapefruit unfold finishing with a dessert of creamy vanilla,hazelnuts and butterscotch. The finish lasts and lasts and lasts finally leaving a big grin of satisfaction

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.
