About the wine

You and David rescued a priceless vineyard -- this rich, elegant Reserve Chardonnay is your reward!
  • David knows how to take a classic California wine to the next level – which is why he’s your expert on Clarksburg Chardonnay. This high-end Chard is full of vibrant fruit flavor and creamy texture.
  • Your crisp white was made from one of the oldest vineyards in the region - that was almost destroyed because it didn't produce as much fruit as neighboring plots. But Angels rescued these vines so David could focus on quality before quantity.
  • It's no wonder this crisp white regularly earns 90%+ ratings from Angels year after year. It's the perfect Chard for a plate of creamy, cheesy fettuccine... (and delicious with post-dinner popcorn and a movie).

Best before
I think this wine will reward you with its ripeness and vibrant acidity now (it's also wonderful consumed much later - after +3 years.)

Serving advice
Twist, open cork, pour, enjoy!

Food match
Any food that starts with chicken...A nice fettuccine napped in cheesy cream sauce or your favorite movie will all work with this wine!
