2016 Windswept Carneros Chardonnay

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.

Did You Know?

Maintaining a constant temperature is critical for fermenting wine. Winemakers in ancient cultures buried amphorae in the ground to keep a wine's temperature steady – some modern winemakers still prefer the same technique over modern equipment and cooling systems.
