VINE CLIFF-Carneros Chardonnay
This wine was barrel fermented and aged 10 months in 45% new French oak. The nose leads with tropical fruits, tangerine, honeydew and melon, a light feeling of oak is in perfect harmony with the fruit. There is a great balance between oak, fruit and acid, along with a definite sense of creaminess. The palate is lush with lemon and lime as well as Carneros characteristic baked pear. A delicate finish of honey, candied butterscotch and apple, great pairing for Maine Lobster as well as any pasta with white sauce.
