Aromas & Flavors
This Chardonnay delights with aromas of citrus, white peach, orange blossom, vanilla, graham cracker and butter perfectly balanced by vibrant and refreshing flavors of Meyer lemon, minerality, cinnamon and pears. Lingering creamy and toasted oak notes round out the finish.
This versatile Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, nutmeg, thyme, basil or toasted nuts.
How It's Made
The grapes are destemmed, pressed, then cold settled in stainless steel tanks before moving to barrels for fermentation. Aged separately in French oak, the wine completes 90% malolactic fermentation, then is sur lee aged and stirred every two weeks until final blending in April, followed by bottling in June.
2018 was a very good year with ideal weather conditions for the vines. Spring produced great set, and average rainfalls led to normal to above-normal yields. Consistently warm temperatures during the summer months without any drastic heat spikes or rain events allowed for longer “hang time” for the grapes, which led to fully ripe flavors.
Chicken Scallops with Tomato, Oak Leaf Lettuce and Fresh Basil
Lightly breaded and fried, these chicken scallops make a complete meal with tomatoes, oak leaf lettuce and basil in a mixed salad. Serve with Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay for a deliciously simple meal.
