Grape variety:  Chardonnay

Producer: Barnett Vineyards

Alcohol content: 14.8%

Origin: California, USA

Notes: Grape Source:   Sangiacomo Vineyards of Sonoma-Carneros (Blocks: 35% South Sonoma, 33% Vella, 32% Catarina) Fermentation:   100% Barrel Fermented, 17% Malolactic Aging:    Aged ‘Sur Lee’ for 10 months in French Oak  20% new and 80% used

The 2013 Chardonnay from the Sangiacomo Vineyard is a beautiful light gold shade. The nose is explosive with fresh pear, peach blossom and honeysuckle. As usual for this wine there is an underlying spiciness, in particular nutmeg. The palate is lush and round with richer notes of honeycomb, toffee and candy apple. The remaining malic acid (only 17% went to lactic) provides plenty of acidity to balance this rich wine. Although lively and fresh in its youth this wine will age wonderfully over the next 4-5 years (2018-2019)

Food pairing: Grilled chicken, Scallops, Snapper
