Winemaker's Notes

Arrowood Grand Archer Chardonnay is made from carefully selected grapes from Sonoma County's Russian River and Alexander Valleys. The wonderfully ripe, rich fruit from the warmer Alexander Valley is blended and balanced with the crisp, more aromatic tropical fruit flavors of the cooler Russian River Valley. Here in Sonoma County, we are blessed to have vineyards that produce intense flavors and complexity with a crisp, balanced acidity. The result is a vibrant fruit experience for the nose and palate. Our Chardonnay features forward fruit flavors and a rich, balanced mouthfeel. Aromatics include pear, apricot and lemon, with hints of tropical fruit and spice. Flavors are bright with rich varietal character and spice notes in the lingering toasty finish. The wine was 100% barrel fermented to add creaminess and a silky texture.

Chef's Suggestions: This lovely Chardonnay will complement a variety of foods, such as grilled salmon or a nice chicken dish. It also pairs well with almost any kind of salad, or with a fresh goat cheese or a classic Gouda.

Alcohol: 13.5%
