Food Pairings for Kesner Chardonnay Napa Valley Old Vines
This wine was an opportunity for me to pursue one of my passions, older plantings of Chardonnay. The vineyards we sourced from for this wine were planted in 1968, 1972 and 1973. Not "old" by any stretch but certainly mature, and these plantings have reached an age where their sense of self if you will, the grace and beauty of their age, has allowed for the production of unbridled, confident, yet delicately nuanced fruit flavours with just the right spark of acid. Delicate white flowers, sliced pears poached in sweet butter, fresh crème, toasted hazelnuts. These vines have definitely hit their stride.
