"They separate a small plot from the Adrianna vineyard in Gualtallary and produce what they call the 2015 G Lot Chardonnay, a barrel-fermented white with a very Burgundian profile. it has great balance between fruit and spice and a fine, elegant palate where the minerality is pretty obvious. This should age very nicely in bottle. 31,200 bottles produced." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon creme, baking spices and some tropical notes. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of tropical fruit, spiced baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part New and part Old World. Finishes long with just a kiss of oak. This Chard has a lot of flavor, but manages never to lose its balance. Pairs well with most fish, lobster, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sauteed wild mushrooms or butter sauces.
