Tasting notes by Ignacio Gallegos Jr., Winemaker, Gallegos Wines~
This classic chardonnay opens up with aromas of crisp apple, pear, mango and a hint of fresh cut pineapple. The layers of flavor are accented with a sparkling minerality and balanced acidity. The finish turns soft and delicate with notes of luxurious créme brûlée. Crisp, yet creamy, this chardonnay epitomizes the best of both worlds. Enjoy this traditional handcrafted wine paired best with good food, family and friends.
Drinking lovely now, but could hold a few years

About Gallegos Vineyards:
Ignacio and his sons, Ignacio III and Eric have been making wine at home for many years. Ignacio's love for wine and pride for producing quality grapes has inspired the family to open a new chapter in the family business. Owning a vineyard management company for many years, the Gallegos family now follows the vines in ALL steps of wine growing, from pruning the vines in the winter, to hand selecting the fruit at harvest and now winemaking. Their experience and passion stems from the Gallegos family legacy of farming grapes in the Napa Valley since the 1950's. The wines of Gallegos represent the collaboration of their history and highly acclaimed designated vineyard estate selections.
