The 2001 Chardonnay boasts an engaging bouquet of pineapple, passion fruit, lemon peel and vanilla. The pineapple and vanilla notes continue on the flavor profile, accented by nuances of apple and citrus. The texture is rich and elegant, unfolding into a crisp, quenching finish.
The crisp character of Firestone Vineyard's 2001 Chardonnay is an excellent match for seafood pastas, lobster with drawn butter, and roast chicken with lemon and herbs. This wine also appeals to accompaniments of grilled vegetables.
