With enticing aromas of honeysuckle, toast and acacia flower, this Chardonnay is love at first sniff, especially for those that are fans of Chablis. Green apple, lemon, and white peach flavors combine with a slight hint of butter and vanilla to create a complex yet elegant wine. This is a Chardonnay that beckons to be paired with light fare, such as crab, lobster, chicken and white fish.
“We were very fortunate to get grapes from Josephine Hill, owned by Lee Martinelli Jr., a fourth generation farmer. Our grapes come from two different blocks in the vineyard which each exhibit unique flavors. I can tell when harvest is approaching as one block reminds me of fresh baked apple pie and the other a lemon drop candy. The blend of the two makes a really nice combination.” – Tom Parmeson
