Our 2016 unoaked chardonnay is Summer's "perfect pairing." This refreshing Russian River Valley Chardonnay offers aromas of white peaches and ripe pears with engaging seasonal flavors of light honeysuckle, asian pear, and honeydew melon. There is light minerality up-front which is then balanced with a creamy mid-palate and finally a crisp acidity on the lingeringly lovely finish. The fruit for this elegant chardonnay was harvested in September 2016 from Sonoma County's world renowned Russian River Valley, the absolutely perfect AVA for this varietal. This wine is a deliciously true reflection of Northern Sonoma County terroir captured in a bottle.
TASTING & PAIRING
This is a fresh, fruity and crisp white wine which pairs really well with many foods from salty, hard cheeses to sushi, Thai and Mexican cuisines. Ripe, seasonal fruit flavors are finely balanced with crisp acidity to form its complex mouth-feel and clean finish. It is recommended that this smoothly refreshing Chardonnay be served lightly chilled to allow you to enjoy its harmonious aromatics.
