Food Pairings for Sterling Chardonnay
Nice Napa chardonnay. Nothing special but good balance, decent fruit, crisp, clean, not overly oaky or too buttery. A little bit of a metallic after taste on the mid palate.
Very delicious. Tasted the vanilla finish! Went well with white meat.
External Reviews for Sterling Chardonnay
A workhorse Chard that fulfills the basic requirement, with peach, buttered toast and vanilla flavors and a creamy texture. The finish is clean and spicy.
Complex, if on a modest scale, with minty pear, citrus and lemony notes; well-focused, clean and refreshing on the finish. Drink now.
Nice and sweet in oak and ripe, forward peaches, pears, apricots and spices, with a touch of tropical fruit, this everyday Chard also pleases for its creamy texture and smooth finish.
Offers good intensity, with fresh, vibrant peach, melon and nectarine flavors that are pure and juicy. Ends on a clean, refreshing note. Drink now.
Intense, with good fruit vibrancy. Lots of pear, spice and apricot flavors that offer good value for the money. Drink now.
Aromas of honeysuckle, citrus and Key lime are friendly and caressing, fresh and lively. Medium-bodied, this has lots to offer in its array of ripe fruit flavors. Drink now.
The Sterling Vintner's Collection Chardonnay is a pale straw color, with concentrated aromas of floral fruit, honeysuckle, pineapple, green apple, soft oak, vanilla and toast followed by flavors of green apple, tropical melon, touches of mineral, baked apple and spice, caramel and French vanilla. The wine shows bright acidity on the entry with a creamy mid palate.
Our 2009 Napa Valley Chardonnay shows graceful, elegant fruit and fragrant, sweet oak spices. The gentle nature of the fruit from this vintage allows the influence of the barrels to shine through, lending rich caramel and vanilla notes to ripe tropical fruit, citrus and floral aromas. The palate is layered with golden apples and peaches and pierced by a bright streak of citrus that carries into the long and crisp finish. Poached fish, grilled chicken or light spring-vegetable pasta would be a nice complement to this wine.
