This wouldn’t normally be on our radar, or in our case – but thankfully the Goddess of Wine picks both low and high above the average price for our mystery items.
The central California Coast around Monterey has an extended growing season which allows for full ripening of the grapes and as a result we have smooth textures to the wine.
Round Bouquet, slightly lemony flavours and a nice honey-like smooth finish.
This is a BIG Chardonnay with all the trimmings.
Roasted chickie with fruit stuffing (pomegranate seeds, figs, raisins, prunes, apricots, dates) made a great match for the wine.
