2016 Big Bend Chardonnay
The 2016 Big Bend Chardonnay is a medium bodied wine full of chalky minerality and a lovely richness that blends old world wine making sensibility with perfectly grown and delicately harvested fruit. The aromatics show vanilla, tropical fruits and white flower. The palette displays medium weight in the mouth, flavors of green apple and pear balanced with wet stone, lemon curd and green papaya. There’s a lovely characteristic of richness to this wine that ends in a lingering and mouthwatering finish.
This is one of those rare Chardonnays that is balanced and bright. It would pair beautifully with most seafood, especially anything accented with citrus and tropical fruit. Because of the wonderful balance it’s also great for anyparty scene as a reception or starter wine.
