Domaine Alfred Chardonnay Central Coast Stainless 2006
TASTING NOTES: A seductive Chardonnay with well-layered tones of exotic star fruit and kumquat give way to a luscious texture of apricot nectar, and a full, lingering palate of ripe tropical fruits and vanilla. Has an opulent texture and rich long-lasting flavor that smacks of baked apple pie. This guaranteed thriller reminds us of Rombauer on �steroids�! FUN FACT: Califa is the name of their rarest �reserve� bottling of Chardonnay in the best vintages (only). The term �Califa� comes from native Indian legend warriors that gave their very favorite wife this name (temporarily). RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Sole or Trout Almandine Shrimp tempura Smoked Salmon Blinis
