Brutocao’s Bliss Vineyard is well known for producing ultra-premium Chardonnay fruit. Before the Brutocao family began producing wine under their own label in 1991, their fruit was sold to other “high-profile” wineries who in turn, produced hundreds of medal-winning Chardonnays over the past few decades. This is yet another in a long line of Brutocao, palate pleasing Chardonnays. “Soft apple and pear tones that fit well with lightly creamy aromas of oak and vanilla. Rounded and viscous, carrying rich fruit in harmony with supporting oak flavors. Supple lemon, green apple and ripe melon hints lead with lactic richness for a soft, lingering finish,” say the winery’s notes. Try it with veal piccata or a savory chicken casserole.
