The rich, full bodied palate displays the mouth filling and intense flavors of fresh ripe pears intermingling with delicious stone fruit flavors, nectarine and pineapple tart. The middle palate shows richness before turning to an elegance only found in the rarest of years that focus the flavors to a long land persistent finish which is both crisp and appealing.
|Wine maker notes
|Combining grapes from the cool climate regions of
southern Sonoma Valley and the Russian River
Valley, Kenwood's Sonoma County Chardonnay
nicely balances the classic fruit flavors of this
varietal with subtle notes of French oak aging.
|This refreshing Chardonnay is enjoyable as an
aperitif and as an accompaniment to fresh greens,
chicken and seafood dishes.
