This is another offering in our impressive lineup of wines produced from the first vintage of the 21st century. This vintage turned out to be very good for Chardonnay and presented us with a harvest of exceptional quality, very much like 1997. The enticing aroma displays a subtle combination of varietal fruit and oak followed by a cornucopia of delicate tropical fruit flavors such as pineapple, mango, and lemon. As always, malolactic fermentation was avoided in order to reserve the acidity and fruit and to ensure a perfect marriage of food and wine. Try this one with a plate of cold oysters, a Crab Louis salad, or your favorite summer grilled dishes.
