Winemaker's Notes

A by Acacia 2006 Chardonnay expresses the vibrant fruit character of grapes grown in California's cool, windswept Monterey County. Bright citrus, pineapple, pear and tropical fruit notes perfume the aromas and beautifully balanced flavors. Hints of spice and vanilla oak weave through the fruit, and then linger on the finish. Crisp natural acidity structures the flavors, balanced with rich, silky texture from sur lie aging.

Lightly chill this Chardonnay, then pull the cork and enjoy with your favorite entrees or simply to sip with friends. A by Acacia's winemaker, Tom Westberg, likes to match this wine with smoked salmon tossed with creamy pasta, pâté on a baguette or sautéed scallops.

The Monterey vineyards produce a perfume of flowers and an underlying minerality, while Sonoma County provides bright cherry flavors, and Carneros adds a touch of classic spiciness.
