Carte Blanche’s 2016 Chardonnay comes from the renowned UV Vineyard on California’s Sonoma Coast. The property is owned and farmed by the one and only, Ulises Valdez, and it is home to the longtime prized Chardonnay clones of Wente and Robert Young. This bottling brings both clones together, creating a beautiful wine with everything we love about Chardonnay - depth, weight, finesse, brightness - all in seamless harmony. On the nose, layers of brioche, citrus blossom, oyster shell and quince come together in a bright and inviting introduction. The palate is focused with bright acidity and a full body, showing plenty of length and notes of crushed rock, brioche, Bartlett pear and lemon curd along the way. This is a gorgeous wine that you will love to share with friends and family. Enjoy!
