Tasting Notes:
This is quite an entrancing wine and a beautiful expression of Chardonnay done well.  Taking cues from the Old World style of winemaking, this beautiful bottling showcases what the grape and Mother Nature can truly offer. Enticing aromas of pear, Granny Smith apple and bakeshop spices lead to big, rich flavors of citrus, spring flowers, caramel, and allspice with a touch of minerality. The mouthwatering finish leaves you with lingering citrus and minerality. Another glass please!

About the Winemaker:
Hugo Maldonado enjoys working with the grapes of Parr Vineyard in the American Viticultural Area of Knights Valley. The location, with its ideal soils and climate, makes for a perfect area to grow Chardonnay. Nestled in the remote Sonoma mountains and influenced by Mt. St. Helena, the days are warm and the nights are cool.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This rich and full bodied Chardonnay will pair well with a wide variety of rich dishes that include crab, lobster, meaty fish, pork, veal, poultry, and vegetables. The key is to mirror the body of the wine to the food, so prepare dishes with sauces to create a full flavor. Use cream sauces, mushroom sauces and even pair with rich soups. Try this wine with the following cheeses and nuts: asiago, havarti, mozzarella and almonds.
About the Winery
Maldonado Vineyards Nearly fifty years ago, Lupe Maldonado was living in a small farming community in Michoacán, Mexico. After moving to California, Lupe began working in the vineyards of Napa Valley. He made a name for himself in the valley as a hard, dedicated worker and was invited to join the team at a new winery, Newton Vineyard. Learn more
