2008 Napa Valley Estate Chardonnay

by David on April 21, 2011

Estate Chardonnay bottleFlavor profile: Crisp and clean on the palate with green apple, ripe pear, fresh citrus, toasty oak and vanilla.
2008 Vintage: A roller-coaster of a growing season yielding low quantities of high quality fruit
Drink now and through: 2013

Chardonnay and food: We’re always saying that a solid acidity makes the wine more food friendly and this wine makes is a great test case. If you look in Colleen’s Kitchen you’ll see that there are beaucoup recipes paired with our Chardonnay – everything from sautéed shellfish or salmon, to roast pork, to cream-based pasta dishes! One of Colleen’s favorites? The Chicken with Meyer Lemon, Fennel & Olives with Gremolata.
