Hummingbirds have always graced the labels of Clos LaChance wines, but more recently winery owners Bill and Brenda Murphy have started a “Hummingbird Series” devoted to individual species that the Murphys think have something in common with a particular grape variety. I’m not sure what characteristics are shared by a South American hummingbird and Chardonnay – maybe both are attractive and zingy? The grapes for this Chardonnay come from two spots in Monterey County: a vineyard east of Soledad and one in the San Lucas AVA. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks, then racked, filtered and bottled, so it doesn’t spend any time in oak. Nor does it go through malolactic fermentation. The result is a Chardonnay that’s very fresh and racy with plenty of citrus and green apple fruit and just a hint of minerality. The persistent core of acidity carries through to a moderately long finish. The wine is also very attractively priced at just $15. The winery suggests pairing this Chardonnay with scallops with mango salsa, Chinese chicken salad or Camembert cheese. I think it would be perfect with just about any simple seafood dish.
