Spotlight on Reserve Chardonnay
This week, we are celebrating our Wine of the Month: Reserve Chardonnay. Our newly-introduced 2018 vintage is a smooth symphony of golden flavors and delicate aromas, perfect for sipping as summer relaxes into autumn. If you haven't had a chance to taste our 2018 Reserve Chardonnay, you can expect to be delighted when you do. Vibrant aromas of lemon cookies and honeysuckle adorn the nose of this wine, leading into a swirling celebration on the palate. Luxurious flavors of honey, apple, and baked goods mingle together before arriving at a finish with a flourish of oak.
We are proud to join in the rich history of Chardonnay in California. The very first records of this varietal succeeding in the New World were right here in the Livermore Valley in the late 1800s, around the time our Estate was founded. The cuttings had been taken from France, the ancestral homeland of Chardonnay, but made themselves at home in the Californian terrior. The quality of Chardonnay from California was a key player in the fight for recognition of New World wines in the worldwide wine scene. Before then, serious wine was the business of France and Italy alone. The Judgement of Paris in 1976, when two Californian wines (one of which was Chardonnay) won against European wines in a blind tasting, helped to usher in the current era. California Chardonnay is now recognized around the globe.
Chardonnay loves California, and the feeling is mutual. Coastal fog that blankets our valley is met by the generous afternoon sun, creating a uniquely perfect environment for Chardonnay grape maturation. Our care for the quality and purity of the fruit allows us to craft a Chardonnay that has the classic buttery, toasted notes of an oaked Chardonnay, but also allows the delicate fruit notes and elegantly balanced acidity to shine through. Californians love Chardonnay—and so does the rest of the US, where Chardonnay is the most consumed white wine by a wide margin. Time to have a sip!
Our 2018 Chardonnay brings together notes of lemon cookies, dandelion honey, fresh honeysuckle, crisp apples, and more. If you think you're not a fan of Chardonnay, we dare you to give it a try!
For this month only, Our Reserve Chardonnay is on sale for only $24. Don't miss out!
