Behind the light straw color are aromas of sweet spring flowers, green tea, and a touch of fresh pineapple. The palate is framed by flavors of lemon meringue, fresh papaya, limestone, and subtle nuances of clove finishing with nectarine and light vanilla oak tones.
This Chardonnay pairs well with scallops over spring greens with a fresh Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Try this wine also with your favorite appetizers such as baked Brie topped with mango preserves or even mixed seafood ceviche served alongside a basket of tortilla chips.
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
