Pale yellow color and clear in the glass. Inviting aromas of grapefruit, pear and white peach are replicated in the flavors which add some hints of nuts, brioche, and honey. An excellent food wine with discreet richness, bright acidity, and appealing edginess. Reminiscent to a degree of powerful Pinot Blanc.
This Chardonnay was crafted by former-Sommelier Matt Ahern with fruit from some of Sonoma's best vineyards. Matt's goal was to create a balanced, wine with some nerve, to pair with food and this wine fills that void very well. Two-thirds of the wine spent 7 months in 50% new French oak and one-third of the wine was stainless steel and the resulting wine is pure, precise, and focused with furtive opulence and complexity that will surprise you. This wine graces the wine lists at many of the country's best restaurants, and that makes it a tremendous value to purchase for your at-home needs and a killer wine for entertaining guests.
