Aquinas Chardonnay 2002
Light straw color with very rich, vanilla oak aromas with peach and crème brulee tones that linger. The palate is lush with Meyer lemon, light caramel, jasmine and sweet papaya flavors.
A great wine for aperitif pairing with finger-foods like warm goat cheese wrapped in filo dough, wild mushroom tarts or tomato, cucumber and lime juice Ahi tuna poke.
Aquinas wines are born from our belief that sophisticated, luxurious wines from pre-eminent appellations should be within the reach of all. We meticulously scour Napa Valley, leveraging generations of deep relationships to find the perfect fruit. Then, we pull upon decades of award-winning winemaking—itself an inherent blend of science and mysticism—to create wines that transcend their temporal origins.
Despite their accessibility, or perhaps because of it, Aquinas wines have been well-received by critics across the country. A string of gold and silver medals has served to further underscore the faith we hold in our founding convictions.
