Spring is in the air! And that deserves a crisp, complex, hand-crafted Chardonnay. The Glasshaus Wines Chardonnay has been in high demand since we featured it last year and it will pair perfectly with warm weather, the back yard and good friends. This hidden gem grows in a vineyard with rows adjacent to Chardonnay twice its price. Stock up and enjoy this Angel Favorite all summer.
Burgundy-style descriptors are sometimes overused. In this case, however, they are right on target. With experience making wine in France, Glasshaus Wines' Owner and Winemaker Rodney Gagnon brought those skills to the Sonoma Coast. He makes a wine many would say is anything but traditional California Chardonnay.
This wine appears light golden and reflective in the glass. In the aromas you'll discover a lighter style wine with Asian Pear, Granny Smith apple and minerality. The crisp palate boasts bright acidity with flavors of lemon zest, hints of grapefruit, pears and apples. The extraordinarily long finish leaves you with citrus and Chablis-like minerality to pair perfectly with shell fish or a light summer dish.
