Annabella Napa Valley Chardonnay 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This Chardonnay has a light golden straw color and ripe aromas of fresh lemon custard and sweet tangerine aromas with a hint of Tahitian vanilla and a touch of clove spice. The palate enters with luscious tropical fruit notes and bold yet balanced acid profile which gives the mid-palate a juicy, almost nectary appeal as the flavors are balanced between ripe mango and sweet passion fruit. Overall there is a floral component reminiscent of jasmine, but not quite as pungent, more of a distant and pleasant fragrance. The final finish on the wine is generous with fruit and perfectly balanced with its acidity and understated oak making it an excellent aperitif and food friendly white. The floral components are subtle but transcendent, taking you some place tropical." -Winery
