The Etesian wind tempers the warm days of summer in the eastern Mediterranean. Similarly,in California the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean cools the vineyards of Sonoma, promoting superb natural balance and well-developed flavors in our grapes.
This Chardonnay brings in flavors of crisp tropical fruit and pineapple: a perfect companion to a sunny summer day or a brief imaginary tropical island getaway (better than spending money on airfare). On the mouth, flavors of peach and Asian pear are met with a smooth finesse. Ending with a long green apple finish, this lightly-oaked Chardonnay will leave you wanting another sip.
This Chardonnay gets along swimmingly with a lot of food personalities. Its best friends include your favorite panini, grilled shrimp cocktail, pasta Alfredo, pulled pork sandwiches and seared scallops. Have a hankering for cheese? Grab a soft chevre and indulge.
