2017 ChardonnayGlass – $9 | Bottle – $32
Our French-style chardonnay was done entirely in our stainless steel tanks, making it crisp and clean with aromas of lime peel and citrus blossom on the nose and flavors of pineapple, tropical fruit and pear on the palate. Pair this wine with an appetizer of semi-soft cheese, like Humboldt Fog or goat cheese drizzled in artisanal honey, or enjoy it with a seafood dish like lemon butter scallops.
