Food Pairings for Staglin Family Chardonnay Rutherford Estate
The 2008 Estate Chardonnay resonates with the color of golden straw in the late summer and begins with a nose of lemon zest, broken honeycomb and ripe pears intermixed with galanga and crushed slate. The medium body of this wine opens with a palate of crème brûlée and white peaches that morphs into a lemongrass spiked citrus custard highlighted by hints of vanilla and oak spice. The resonant acidity underneath all of these flavors should allow a long life and good evolution.
