Product Description

Gleaming radiant gold, our 2014 Dijon Clones Chardonnay sings from the glass with enticing aromas of lemon peel, fresh white flowers and citrus blossom, interlaced with subtle notes of lemon tart, ground nutmeg and honeyed graham cracker. The wine exhibits a rounded mouthfeel with refreshing acidity, opening with bright flavors of pineapple juice, sweet candied lemon and creamy lemon curd, leading into hints of white nectarine, yellow pear and vanilla bean that linger through the clean, lasting finish.

PAIRING

Well-rounded and bright, this supple Chardonnay would pair wonderfully with a variety of seafood dishes, such as shrimp fra diavolo or octopus salad with white beans and lemon. This versatile wine would also delight alongside poultry or vegetarian dishes and would make an excellent partner to a cheese course when matched with La Bonaparte, a creamy cow’s milk cheese from Quebec.

Details

Varietal: Chardonnay

Region: Carneros

Region Description:

This small section of Northern California is situated at the base of both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Carneros has made its reputation with its Pinot Noirs, which are filled with strawberry, cherry, spice, and chocolate, and are very rich and seductive. Chardonnay is also excellent, very buttery but not too fat.
