Clos du Bois Chardonnay Alexander Valley Calcaire 2008
Our Chardonnay exhibits ripe fruity flavors of pear, crisp green apple, vanilla and toasty caramel. A medium-bodied wine, approximately 70% is barrel-fermented to integrate fruit and oak flavors. Partial malolactic fermentation adds a rich texture and buttery component on the palate. Sonoma County Chardonnay is aged in the barrel for 6-8 months before bottling. Food Pairing: This Chardonnay is perfect for sipping alone or with fish, chicken or lighter pasta dishes. Enjoy lightly chilled - store in a cool place, then place in the refrigerator about a hour before serving.
Went well with Indian food.
This wine has a strong, but not over powering fruit flavor. The main flavors at the front of the palate are apple and pear. There is a slight vanilla flavor. The acidity is enough to bring the flavor to a sudden, but not too short end. The color is exactly what a Chardonnay should look like.
