Winery Notes:
This Chardonnay opens delicately with rich notes of vanilla bean and almond husk, which reminds me of a decadent crème brûlée. The creamy custard notes are balanced by a soft minerality and a hint of worn leather.

Those creamy notes continue to your palate where they are joined with a light woodiness from the oak. Just like that first bite of brûlée, this wine will melt in your mouth for a long, creamy finish.

Pairings:
I’ve been loving this Chardonnay with any seafood dish that features butter or brown butter sauce... baked chicken, creamy pastas or soups, squash and winter vegetables... You’re staying for dinner, right?

Bread:
We used 1 year old American oak for the Sonoma fruit over 4 months, and new French oak for the Monterey fruit for just 8 months. The Fruit from Sonoma is more citrus and white fruit, so we wanted to add creaminess and vanilla notes. The Monterey fruit is more tropical, and the French oak gives us some spice and silk. Together they blend into a wine that has so much complexity and layers, it’s like Inception all over again.
