2016 Vineyard Montage Chardonnay
This creamy wine bursts with notes of soft honey and melon that lead into luscious flavors of butterscotch and vanilla before the long, smooth finish. From the windswept vineyards of Arroyo Seco, the Vineyard Montage Chardonnay was aged 10 months on the stirred lees in 20 % new french French Oak barrels. At the end of primary fermentation, this Chardonnay went through malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity and bring out a rich creaminess that is signature to this wine.
The creaminess of this wine makes it perfect for pairing with baked salmon or Alfredo pasta.
