Tasting Notes:
So light and delicate in the glass, the average wine drinker would never know the wine they are about to enjoy is a Chardonnay from California. Set aside all preconceived notions of what defines a California Chardonnay! Fermented completely in stainless steel in the style of Chablis, this wine has a very pale straw core and watery rim that practically screams summertime. Aromas of fresh apple and pear with hints of minerality and citrus lead to a dry, crisp, yet somehow slightly round mouth feel. Moderately light in body with a nice balance of acidity to alcohol, this wine is sure to change the way you think of California Chardonnay. This is the perfect wine to sip on a hot summer day.
