Made with organic grapes sourced from windswept vineyards in the Carneros appellation, this California Chardonnay is fresh, vibrant and driven. Juicy citrus and green apple flavors are unabashedly displayed on the entry, then ever so slightly softened by a creamy texture from the neutral barrel fermentation. A natural with fish, this wine would also be a delight with lemon-roasted chicken.
