Elegant and full flavoured white wine. Intense aromas and flavours of yellow apple, crème brûlée and hints of apricot, pear and oak. Tantalizing notes of citrus, dried apricot, and pineapple. The Chardonnay from Los Carneros provides the bright acidity, citrus notes, and lean backbone of the wine. Combined with the fruit from Oak Knoll, Rutherford and Stag's Leap, this results in a multi-layered, complex wine with a lingering finish.
Try with white fish, white meat or with ripened cheeses. Go for fine premium fish such as turbot, grilled or seared lobster and scallops. Simply roast chicken or grilled veal chops with mushrooms and slow roast tomatoes, even white truffles. Vegetarians can pair it with red peppers, corn, butternut squash and pumpkin.
