California Chardonnay offers layered flavors on its rich, rounded palate. The wine opens with layered notes of Asian pear, ripe apricot and juicy tropical fruit blending with hints of baked apple pie, vanilla toffee and zesty lemon. The long finish features toasty vanilla and caramel characteristics. Pair this approachable Chardonnay with chilled corn soup with grilled shrimp, lemon chicken with oregano-roasted potatoes or baked brie with spiced apples.
