Pairs well with light fish, shellfish, and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Also lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.

Focused if a bit oaky on the nose, this slowly reveals taut apple fruit, hints of wood smoke and spice and some peachy accents. A bit creamy at first but really quit focused in the mouth. this really snaps together quite nicely with apple fruit and vanilla and toasty oak spice integrating well. It’s a bit of a firm style for the price point, carrying its oak well and showing finely restrained fruit. That peachy nuance appears again on the backend with a hint of pollen and a glint of mineral river stone. Showing a bit of toasty almond on the palate and through the relatively long finish this is a classic California Chardonnay and a fabulous value. 90pts

Delicious complex chardonnay. Great accompaniment to salmon or cheese.
