Melville Vineyards Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills 2015

On the palate, notes of fresh ginger, kumquat and dried straw mingle with weightier impressions of sourdough toast, caramel and roasted marshmallow. The mouthfeel is velvety, with a touch of oiliness on the mid-palate along with an energetic streak of acidity that anchors a voluptuous and polished finish.

Neyers Vineyard Chardonnay 2016, Carneros, Sonoma County, California, USA$36.00Add to cart
The 2016 vintage was great for Chardonnay, giving us
long, sunny days with mild temperatures that retained
the fruit’s natural acidity. Our fermentation was carried
out in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels
using native wild yeast, and periodically lees stirring. The
finished wine is rich and creamy with a charming
butterscotch component, and a trace of grilled bread in
Trefethen Chardonnay 2018
$42.00Add to cart
Ample rainfall in the spring recharged the soil profile and provided a strong start to the growing season. The weather during the summer featured consistent warmth and sunshine without any major heat spells. Cooler than average temperatures in August and September slowed the ripening process for the Trefethen Chardonnay 2018, providing long hang time and leading to complex flavor development.
Aromas of lemon and lime are complemented by a touch of apple blossom and white peach. Subtle notes of toasted oak frame the palate which features more citrus flavors and hints of apple and pear. The lively acidity brings great balance and the finish is refreshing and smooth.
The bright citrus notes of the Trefethen Chardonnay 2018 make it a perfect match for shellfish and tarragon. Try a simple dish of salt and pepper shrimp or caramelized jumbo scallops over rice. Also try adding tarragon to fresh goat cheese and enjoy with your favorite torn bread and good friends!
