Food Pairings for Kunde Estate Chardonnay Sonoma Valley
Crisp Granny Smith apple on the nose with some herbal green tones and asparagus. Th apple flavors are pleasant but the vegetal green tones in this wine are a distraction. Far too herbaceous. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011
"The 2009 Kunde Family Estate Sonoma Valley Chardonnay reflects, once again, the consistent good fortune that comes from our particular location in the valley. This vintage was cooler than normal, helping us retain the crisp natural acid structure that is so important in creating a lively Chardonnay. But our vineyards sit at a transition point where the climate starts to warm, giving us ripe flavors of pears and pineapples, with just a hint of allspice and mandarin orange in the finish. It makes us think of pan-seared halibut with rosemary or simply-seasoned grilled chicken breasts and summer squash as the perfect accompaniments. Serve it cool, just above refrigerator temperature, to best appreciate all the complex flavors.
