Napa Valley "Estate" Chardonnay

Napa Valley "Estate" Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $29.00 per bottle

Description: Clean and crisp, the culmination of this 100% Chardonnay blend is an intense fully ripe fruit character of pink grapefruit, banana, apple, tangerine, pineapple, pear and vanilla almond toasted oak. The nose carries forward tropical fruit aromas with a hint of fresh lemon citrus. This is a well-balanced wine with complex body and structure. When cellared properly, this vintage can be enjoyed for several years from release date. Goosecross is not just another 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.
