Tasting Notes:
The Von Holt team was thrilled to finish the 2013 vintage with what they call a "perfect growing season", and the results are in the wine.   Such a pretty wine, golden and bright, the nose opens with citrus and minerality. The complex and layered palate unfolds with flavors of meyer lemon, ripe pear and white flowers followed by soft notes of bake shop spice. The acidity mingles and balances the hints of crème brûlée and leads to a lingering, refreshing finish.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
The 2013 Von Holt Chardonnay is as elegant as a lavish meal. Chicken or fish appetizers with herbs and sauces will pair nicely. Serve with roast chicken cooked to perfection with intense seasoning to bring out concentrated flavors. Roasted, baked or grilled well-seasoned fish is another worthy option. This chardonnay can handle the intensity of harder cheeses like aged Gouda and Parmesan. Enjoy with creamy desserts like flan or creme brulee.
