Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Veritas Chardonnay is one hundered percent estate grown. As a result we are able to optimize growing conditions and ensure that the grapes express the terroir of the Blue Ridge. 2007 was a superior growing year, the result, ripe superior fruit that made ripe superior wine; made entirely in stainless steel without barrel aging and malolactic conversion. The wine has soft aromas of honey, apples and pears that are followed by the taste of fresh honeyed fruit that culminates in a crisp and tangy finish. Don't think ABC - Anything But Chardonnay - think NBC - Nothing But Chardonnay

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.
