Food Pairings for Manzoni Santa Lucia Highlands Lucia Highland Vineyard Chardonnay
Hand harvested fruit was immediately pressed into stainless steel tanks to settle for 72 hours prior to being transferred to a combination of French oak barrels and stainless steel tank for fermentation. After the completion of primary fermentation, the young wine was allowed to go through 100 percent malolactic fermentation to add complexity and a supple mouthfeel.
Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands is always loaded with incredible fruit intensity and rich flavor. Ripe Bosque pear and tropical aromas of pineapple and banana accentuate the nose. Through the process of “sur lee” aging the wine has developed a soft texture with medium weight and aromatic notes of hazelnut and crème brulee. A touch of citrus and French oak are also evident.
