Winemaker's Notes:

A Chardonnay that is rich in classic varietal character with a hint of French oak. Attractive golden yellow color with tree fruit and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the wine balances fruity acidity and a honeyed richness. Apple, pear, and mango flavors give way to a smooth and lingering finish.

This medium-bodied wine will compliment butter and cream-based sauces, including Fettuccine Alfredo. Seafood and chicken prepared in these sauces would be a perfect pairing.

About Bravium:

Bravium translates from Latin as "reward, prize, or gift" and sums up Proprietor and Winemaker Derek Rohlffs' feelings about wine – namely that it is a reward for our labors, a prized part of mealtime, and a gift to be shared. Derek's winemaking philosophy is an extension of his Environmental Studies background and belief that great wine begins in the vineyard. Bravium utilizes minimalist winemaking practices and its wines are balanced and food-friendly. One of Derek's music heroes, Jack White, has said: "Technology is the disease you have to fight in any creative field…ease of use [is the enemy]." And while winemaking is part art and part science, Bravium emphasizes traditional methods whenever possible. Bravium was created to give back to charitable organizations by way of its Sip&Give donation platform.
