Smooth and crisp Chardonnay that's ripe with refreshing, fruity flavors
Tom whipped you up a real treat! This refreshing Chardonnay’s blooming with bright tropical fruits, juicy green apples and rich, smooth texture – with a long, clean finish.
Thanks to Angels, Tom got access to the ripest, most flavor-packed fruit around for this crisp white. “I really enjoy making expressive, fruit-forward Chardonnays like this that have a touch of creaminess – without being overly oaky,” he says.
Chill a bottle of this white, pour a glass and let it sit for a few minutes to let the fresh fruity flavors open up. Then crack a few oysters, slurp, and guzzle down this white. You won’t regret it.
While this wine might benefit from some age, I expect it to be most enjoyable in the first two years after release.
Chill, but not too cold or the bright fruit flavors will be muted. 45-50 F would be best. If it's at room temp, 90 minutes in the fridge or 45 minutes in the freezer should get you in the ballpark.
Local food match
Cracked crab with melted butter, scampi, scallops, and similar shellfish dishes would be excellent with this. It's also very good as an aperitif!
