Cannonball Sonoma Country Chardonnay 2013
|Bottle volume ml||750ml|
|Country of origin||United States|
Raise your glass to a wine with oak and creaminess, but isn’t a wood and butter bomb. This Chardonnay is a superlative blend, starting with grapes from the winemaker’s own Adam and Eve vineyard in the Northern Russian River Valley, the fruit sourced from there contributes both fantastic acidity and distinguished minerality. They have blended in luscious fruit generously sourced from Carneros bringing both riper and tropical flavors. To preserve the nature and beauty of Sonoma County’s bounty they chose to ferment and age the Chardonnay in 50% French Oak and 50% stainless steel with 50% going through malolactic fermentation, creating a wine both authentic and disparately balanced.
Offer a sophisticated nose of lemon custard, Crème Brûlée, rustic galette and vanilla bean spices.
PalateElegant and expressive, with a full entry that richly expands over the palate. Ornate creaminess and expressive acidity harmonize with flavors of Pear Tarte Tatin, nectarine, marmalade and cardamom spice, leading to a decadent, lingering finish.
