This wine exhibits aromas of ripe guava and pineapple.
Balanced with a light, creamy texture, as well as a luscious mid-palate that carries through to a focused and stimulating finish.
The warm summer and early harvest of 2007 contributed a distinct tropical characteristic to this Chardonnay. Sourced entirely from the Carneros region of Napa Valley, this Chardonnay exhibits the finesse that only judicious cool-barrel aging can achieve.
Bottled June 2008.
100% barrel fermented.
Aged surlies for 8 months in 50% new French oak.
This vintage pairs nicely with richer seafood dishes such as seared scallops on hollandaise or lobster mousseline salad with papaya.
