Edna Valley Chardonnay is known for conveying a distinctive sense of place. As is typical of good Chardonnays, they use techniques like barrel fermentation, malolactic fermentation, lees stirring and aging in new oak barrels. Their goal is to balance these winemaking techniques with the unique flavors that come from growing Chardonnay in Edna Valley. The 2006 Chardonnay offers smoky aromas of vanillin oak and sweet spice balanced by white peach, pineapple and citrus notes. On the palate, full, round flavors of white peach and citrus are accompanied by a subtle minerality on the long finish. Enjoy this wine paired with creamy pastas, baked sea bass, seared scallops and roast chicken with lemon and herbs.
