Channing Daughters Chardonnay Cuvée Tropical 2008
We are always very happy to release a new vintage of our lovely Blaufränkisch. Over the years this variety has proven its affinity with our climate and we love to use it both as a blending grape and as a varietal bottling. This is a special grape, classified by Charlemagne in the 8th century and grown all over middle and northern Europe with a particular fondness for Austria. Our 2008 version is comprised of 75% Blaufränkisch and 25% Merlot.
Food Pairings for Channing Daughters Chardonnay Cuvée Tropical
The wine has a clear ruby red color with purple inflections. The aromas and flavors are full of red and black raspberries, plums, anise, liqourice, spices and a touch of smoked meat. This is a dry, supple, sexy wine with Burgundian texture. The alcohol is moderate, the acid juicy and balanced, the tannins are present but soft, and the wine offers a great deal of pleasure and a delicious finish.
318 cases produced.
Notes: The wine was raised in one to eight year old French, American and Slovenian oak barrels for fourteen months.
