This wine pairs wonderfully with roasted chicken or pork loin, any seafood dish, including lobster and crab, roasted root vegetables and creamy pasta dishes. The Chardonnay grape is one of the leading white grape varieties in the world for production of high quality white wines. Its origins have been traced back to the Burgundy region of France, and it has been a part of the emerging California wine industry since the late 1800’s. The Lodi appellation is ideal for producing it, mainly due to its climate and rich sandy loam soils. Our vineyards enjoy warm Mediterranean-like weather, which allows for flavor development. They are also exposed to cool maritime breezes that come in the evenings, maintaining the grapes’ fresh acidity.
A clean, crisp, unoaked Chardonnay. Infused with crisp acidity and minerality, it’s so rich in pineapple, pear and green apple fruit, you won’t miss the oak. The “wild” fermentation enhances both the aromatics and the fruit flavors, allowing the true varietal characteristics of Chardonnay to shine through.
