Three Coins Chardonnay 2007
This wine is rich, bright and full-bodied, with flavors of apple and pear with an overlying nutty complexity and a crisp finish. It's from the Oakville region of the Napa Valley, where the vines are cooled in the early morning and late evening by fog from San Pablo Bay and bathed in Napa sunshine by day. Wines from this region are knows for their rich texture.
Unassuming nose of light melon. Big rich and complex with bready sweetness and perfectly balanced acidity.
From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 88 Points. Silver Medal. Golden yellow color. Aromas of dried lemon and apple have a creamy note and follow through on a round entry to a dryish medium body with good length and a tart, spicy apple skin, limestone, and pineapple core fade. Pair with grilled swordfish with mango salsa. (tasted on Mar-02-2009)
