Bonterra California Chardonnay
Winemaker Jeff Cichocki has crafted an especially aromatic white with a jazzy perfume of jasmine as well as sugar-dusted apples and almond shortbread. Seventy percent of the juice is fermented in a combination of French and American oak; the other 30% is fermented in stainless steel.
After an initial creaminess, the palate’s crispness centers around a focused core of fresh citrus. On the finish, ripe pineapple nips the tongue, solidifying this wine’s food-pairing potential.
