Food Pairings for Montevina Chardonnay California
Our 2009 Chardonnay underwent partial malolactic fermentation to enhance the mouthfeel and add creamy tones to the wine while retaining crisp and balanced varietal flavors. Our winemaker, Chris Leamy, used primarily stainless steel fermentation, with just under 10% fermentation on French oak.
The Montevina 2009 Chardonnay presents the tropical flavors and great acidity typical of our California vineyards. Bright fruits dominate the nose with banana, lemon, and citrus. Hints of sweet toasting oak, vanilla bean and freshly-picked figs fill in the palate. The wine has a balanced acidity, with just enough creaminess to add depth. The palate finishes bright, making it a great all-around food wine.
