Brilliant straw in color, the 2009 Chardonnay is full-bodied and offers up layered aromas of red and green apple, pear, vanilla bean, blossoms and lemon meringue. The palate delivers balanced structure and palate-cleansing acidity alongside bright fruit flavors backed by intense notes of caramel, toffee, spice and toasty oak. The smooth, rich finish is lingering and wraps up with hints of butter and toast thanks to malolactic fermentation and sur lie maturation.
FOOD PAIRING: This ripe, full-bodied Chardonnay will complement dishes like fish prepared in lemon butter, pasta in cream sauce, and similar luscious fare.
Silky and crisp with pleasant, ripe pear fruit, notes of toasty oak and a juicy, smooth finish; clean, balanced and bright.
