It is said that the gun tamed the west. It is also said that the dainty little Derringer tamed the gambling tables. The mere thought that one of these genteel enforcers might be lying in wait—tucked neatly in a gentleman's vest pocket or in the garter of an attractive gambling house proprietress— tended to bring out the honesty in people. We pay homage to this exquisite instrument with our Pearl Handle Chardonnay.
Concentrated, round and viscous with sufficient acidity to maintain a full presence from beginning to end. The evolution is smooth and lively and the finish is long and refreshing with complex flavors of fruit and oak.
This Chardonnay has aromas of pear, apricots, melon, honeysuckle, and toasty oak. The taste is a smooth, viscous, and balanced, with good acidity, a long finish, and a full-tilt style without being heavy or cloying.
