2021 Grand Estates Chardonnay
This Chardonnay opens with intense fresh fruit aromas of apples, pears, and melons, joined by signature characters of crème Brûlée, caramel and graham cracker. Ripe orchard fruit flavors are joined by creamy, buttery notes and balanced by lively acidity.
Chicken salad with apples and brie cheese, crab cakes, and herb crusted pork chops.
64% of the blend was fermented in oak and went through malolactic fermentation to build a rich mouthfeel component to the blend.
36% of the blend was fermented in Stainless Steel tanks with no malolactic fermentation to showcase the bright acidity in the wine.
