Food Pairings for Jeff Gordon Cellars Chardonnay Carneros
This is our third release of this popular varietal. The grapes form this selection come from a 35-year-old Wente Clone vineyard on the Sonoma County side of Carneros, just south of the town of Sonoma. The wine is bright and golden straw in color. Aromas of tropical fruit mingle with hints of melon, apple and vanilla. With a well-balanced palate and moderate oak, flavors of passion fruit, pineapple and mandarin orange show through. The grapes were gently hand sorted, whole-cluster presses, cold settled, inoculated with yeast and racked to barrels for fermentation. Barrel selection was 30 percent new Damy French oak and 70 percent two-and-three-year-old French oak barrels from previous vintages. After the completion of fermentation, the wine was inoculated with a malo-lactic culture, stirred every other week and sur-lees aged for 8 months.
