Landmark Chardonnay 2008
The fruit in ’08 was of classic morphology, most of the clusters were less than four inches in length and berry size was tiny, a formula for distinctive chardonnay. Following whole cluster pressing and settling of the juice overnight, the wine fermented in barrel with native yeasts and underwent complete malolactic fermentation as well. Lees stirring and aging sur lie for 14 months has produced a wine of well-integrated fruit and oak flavors.
Juicy. Rich tropical and pitted fruits on the palate. Bracing acidity. It's a tad tart and sour. - Tasted at winery 12/29/10
Creamy, yeasty nose over crisp green apple and citrus. On the palate, it has very strong citrus flavors like tangerine, etc. Really juicy with a strong fruit core. Great acidity throughout. This is a bigger, crisp, more French style chardonnay from Landmark. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011

Food Pairings for Landmark Chardonnay
The wine shows a beautiful golden yellow color with distinctive honey and pear fruit expression. There is a very concentrated core of fruit on the palate with underlying minerality and good acid structure. The wine has the capacity to age gracefully for many years to come.
