Esser Vineyards Chardonnay California 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Esser Vineyards California Chardonnay 2006 : NVWE NOTES: This fine value-priced Chardonnay shows a quiet elegance in its aromas of white peach, apple and lemon zest, and subtly earthy undercurrents. In the mouth, it is supple and refreshing, with flavors of apple and lemon dominating. Well built for food service, it should drink nicely with baked chicken, grilled fish, sausage pilaf and other simple pleasures.WINEMAKER NOTES: A brilliant straw color, the wine offers blossomy, fresh aromas of pear, melon and ripe citrus, along with a background of sweet oak spice. On the palate, its medium-bodied, harmonious character delivers bright flavors of stone fruits and ripe grapefruit, in a juicy but firm texture. Wonderful with virtually all seafood, it is also delicious with light pastas, frittatas, picnic fare and fresh cheeses.ESSER VINEYARDS CALIFORNIA CHARDONNAY 2006
