2021 Chardonnay, Anderson Valley
This cool-climate chardonnay leads with aromas of Meyer lemon, honeycomb, and grapefruit. On the palate, flavors of nougat, honeydew melon, lemon blossom, baked pear and a hint of clove. The finish is bright, with delicate mineral and floral notes laced with very subtle toasted oak.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRING
We love this balanced, polished chardonnay with fresh seafood. Oysters, ceviche, or fresh halibut are a splendid match for the crisp acidity. Toasted, spiced nuts like pistachios or Marcona Almonds and a tangy cheese like a young, fresh chèvre, are a delicious accompaniment to the creamy texture and distinctive fruit profile of this wine.
