The Chardonnay varietal has long been a treasured grape of Monterey County. This 2013 Estate Chardonnay is from the famed Riverside Vineyard located on a high bench overlooking the Salinas River. The soils are well-drained and formed of decomposed granite.
Made in a true Burgundian style, the nose provides initial scents of butter and toast that give way to red apples, pineapples, white peaches, pears, nutmeg, vanilla and slate. This abundance of fruits follows through on the palate that is full and powerful with a distinctive mineral component lasting into the finish. Said finish is lively and firm with traces of oak spice.
A Roasted Chicken with Tangerines would compliment this exceptional white wine, while salmon rillettes (using anise liqueur) will also flatter the Chardonnay. Drink now and until 2020.
