Sonoma County is one of California's most prestigious and historic wine-producing regions. The grapes used in our 2008 L de Lyeth Chardonnay were sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Sonoma County. With warm afternoons and cool evenings, the climate is perfect for Chardonnay grapes. Floral and fruit aromas burst from the glass with bright, fruit forward flavors of pear and melon with a hint of Granny Smith apple. This is a crisp, bright wine with great texture, a balanced acid and creamy traces of vanilla that lead to a buttery smooth finish. Excellent with Dungeness crab, linguine with scallops, or roasted chicken.
"Doesn't seem to have much, if any, oak on it, but it doesn’t matter, because the underlying wine is so good, at such a nice price. Crisp and steely, it shows rich flavors of pineapples, apricots, tangerines and pears. "
