The Smoking Loon “Steelbird” is Chardonnay with a difference. They kicked the oak to the curb aging this wine for five months in 100% stainless steel. The wine opens with a lush floral bouquet of Honeydew melon and fresh pear, followed by notes of Granny Smith apple and ruby red grapefruit. This mediumbodied wine is bright yet creamy on the palate from partial malolactic fermentation with its refreshing flavors of lemon curd and pineapple; it’s sure to become an instant summer favorite. This wine will pair nicely with a wide variety of dishes, from homemade guacamole and chips to a fresh Margherita pizza or even a simple Caesar salad with a squeeze of lemon.
