Cartlidge & Browne Chardonnay North Coast 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"The question that begs to be answered is why so many producers ignore what Cartlidge and Browne does better than just about anybody else in the state - produce fruit forward, pure, varietally correct, delicious wines.” —Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Cartlidge & Browne Winery:
"Despite the enormous influence of California's wineries, too few specialize in premium wines at value prices. One that does is Cartlidge and Browne. Avoiding extra oak and other types of manipulation used by some vintners, Cartlidge & Browne produces fruity, pure, and vibrant wines that reflect varietals' personalities.

Fruit Sourcing/Winemaking: We get to pick and choose the best vineyards across California—some with lively acid, others that will lend a plush texture on the palate. From there, we ferment the grapes under strict temperature controls, age the wine, blend to taste, and age the wine some more until it’s integrated, aromatic and delightful on the palate. Ah Chardonnay… Tasting Notes: Gold in the glass and roaring with aromatic passion fruit, guava and tangerine on the nose. Medium bodied with lively hints of cinnamon spice, and flavors of stone fruit (like warm, freshly baked peach cobbler) cruise into a lemon curd packed finish. Food Pairings: Chardonnay is a “comfortable cruiser” when it comes to pairing with food—it will play nicely with a variety of foods. Enjoy it on its own or take it for a test drive with sautéed fish with lemon-butter sauce, roast chicken, or your go-to creamy pasta recipe. Oak Aging: 10 months, medium Alcohol % by Volume: 13.5% pH: 3.68 Total Acidity g/100ml: 0.6

Ah Chardonnay… a big, comfortable Cruiser. As smooth as tuck and roll seats. Easy to handle as three on the tree. Relaxing as a Sunday afternoon drive. Might not be the fastest but it’ll get you there. And all of your friends too. Dependable and perhaps unappreciated. Ah Chardonnay… - Winery Alcohol: 13.5% pH: 3.41 Total Acidity g/100ml: 0.6
