Jaine Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay 2021
The Jaine Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay is bright and pale yellow in color. It has an aromatic bouquet of fresh cut hay, stone fruit and fresh lime peel that leads to a palate that is beautifully balanced, with a fine and focused acidity that is reminiscent of the wines of Chablis. Powerful, yet elegant, this wine finishes with chalk, dusty stone and yellow flowers.
One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
