Rombauer - Chardonnay (375 ml)
This product is currently sold out.
Region: USA / California / Carneros
Type: Full-bodied white wine
Vineyards: The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in the Carneros region owned by the Rombauer family and select growers including the Sangiacomo family, long-term grower partners who have farmed this land for three generations.
Vinification: The grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit is still cool. The juice is pumped to tanks to cold-settle overnight before it is racked to barrel for primary and malolactic fermentation. The lees are stirred every two weeks to give the wine rich flavors and a creamy texture.
Color: Pale yellow.
Nose: Enticing aromas of vanilla, peach, and mango are layered with apricots, creme brulee, butter, and a slight minerality.
Palate: Scents are echoed as flavors on the creamy, rich palate, along with peach, pie crust, and baking spices. The long, smooth finish is marked by mouthwatering acidity.
Food pairing: Pork, poultry, rich fish, vegetarian dishes.
