Winemaker's Notes:

The Woodstock Chardonnay opens with an enjoyable eclectic mixture of rich pear, mineral, and papaya aromas followed by fresh flavors of Asian pear apple, citrus, and tropical fruit with great acid on the finish. Or as Mark likes to say, "sunshine in a bottle". Enjoy this rich dry white wine with salmon, chicken, creamy soups, and white sauced pasta.

About the Blend:
Since it is the 40th anniversary of the famous Woodstock Festival, Mark was excited to revisit the legend that the event is and draw upon it. The music of Woodstock celebrates community, individual expression, and breaking with the past. Inspired by this message, Winemaker Mark Beaman created a 'naked' style Chardonnay. Unlike other regions which grow more muted flavored Chardonnays (which are then dressed up with oak and malolactic fermentation), Woodstock Chardonnay is an expression of pure fruit character and the land it was grown on.

About Wines That Rock:

The founders of Wines That Rock have been at the forefront of bringing Rock 'n Roll to fans for decades. This new project was born out of two great passions, music and wine. The project's goal is the creation of great tasting wines inspired by the spirit of Classic Rock 'n Roll Music, iconic album art for labels, earth friendly production from the grape to the labels and great consumer value. With over 30 years of rock 'n roll experience, Wines That Rock founders intend to use their rock 'n roll expertise to promote, produce and market these one of a kind wines, no differently than they would a World Wide Tour of a major artist.
