CHARDONNAY 2021 Monterey, Sonoma and Santa Barbara counties
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MEIOMI
This crowd-pleaser typifies the new improved direction of California Chardonnay with less emphasis on oak and much more on freshness. Bright medium-light straw colour, it has gently spicy, floral, ripe pear aromatics with some melon-lemon-apple notes. Dry, medium bodied, harmonious, ripe, pear-melon-apple-lemon flavours with a lingering, very faintly cedary finish. Itís ready-to-drink and will work well with poultry. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with lees stirring creating good mouthfeel. Underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was aged with French oak. Has 13.5% alcohol and according to the LCBO 6 g/L residual sugar. Screwcap closure. CSPC 410712

TASTING NOTE: From a prominent California winery, this decadent Chardonnay is bursting at the seams, serving flavours of mango, vanilla, butterscotch and sweet spices. It's soft and round on the palate, with hints of custard on the finish. Pour this lavish wine with honey-mustard glazed ham or sweet-and-spicy udon noodles. (2022) Price $ 24.95
