We’re also delighted to introduce you to our 2014 Chardonnay—she’s exactly the kind of visitor you want dropping by. Charming, friendly, a perfect balance between serious and light-hearted. She’s got strong structure, with a delicate acidity that balances out whatever rich, delicious creaminess you want to pair her with—pasta, poultry, white-fleshed fish.

Chardonnay 2013

We have a special place in our hearts for this barrel fermented Chardonnay. It walks a fine line between deliciousness and seriousness, and that means you can take it anywhere. The apple/pear/melon fruit is about as charming and friendly as you can expect from the flavors in a wine, but the definition, structure, and length elevate its pedigree and aging ability. It is more fruit driven than our Reserve Chardonnay, and takes its place as a bridge from our Sauvignon Blanc to our Chardonnay Reserve. This Chardonnay has the acidity and cut to pair with oysters and fresh cheeses, but also the weight and texture to meet the richness of cream or butter based dishes.
