Tasting Notes:
A true expression of the fruit and soil. Brilliant straw color with tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon-lime, and Asian pear on the nose with a hint of minerality. On the palate, honeydew, hint of lemon, red grapefruit, with minerality – sealed with a Zork.

About the grapes:
Cindy’s unoaked Chardonnay offers an impressive New Generation style of California Chardonnay; stainless steel fermented, no malolactic fermentation, and sealed with a Zork. If traditional oaky, buttery Chardonnay is not your style, you must taste this New Generation Chardonnay. Perfect for summer, this clean, crisp and fruit forward Chardonnay leaves you wanting more.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
With no oak barrel aging, the Chardonnay grape shows off its natural fruit flavors. Serve with light dishes like linguini, clams and shrimp scampi. First courses such as salads, antipasto or seafood dishes are particularly good pairings. Fresh herbs and fruit within dishes bring out the best in this style of wine. Serve with spicy food and Mediterranean cuisines. Enjoy also with soft and medium-hard cheeses.
