2012 New Generation Unoaked Chardonnay
No oak. No joke.
Celebrate the return of Passagio Wines today, with their 2012 New Generation Unoaked Chardonnay. Our Operatives have been asking for more Passagio wines and today, we deliver a great one!
With a balance that is uncommon for an unoaked Chardonnay, today’s wine was a huge hit at our most recent tasting panel. This wine is bright and balanced up-front and it grows more complex as it spreads across the entire palate. Crisp fruit is a persistent treat throughout the entire experience.
Slightly less complex on the palate than on the nose, this wine would also be a real hit for fans of white Burgundy.
Very highly recommended, especially at today’s price, we suggest that you pick up enough of this wine to last you through the holidays.
Perfect clarity through glinting golden hues that catch the light.
Bright and fresh with a complex nose for an unoaked Chardonnay, this wine exudes aromas of lemon peel, lemongrass, lime flower, young white peach, white raisin and a delightful aroma of grape stems and seeds.
Very clean and very fresh with flavors of lemon, lime leaf, young white peach, Granny Smith apple, yellow grapefruit and a hint of flinty minerality.
Fresh and bright with wonderful fruits that linger very slowly.
Very flexible and very food-friendly, this wine will go with nearly anything you could throw at it! We’ll be enjoying ours with a pepper crusted Ahi steak, seared to perfection.
What the Winery Says
- Winemaker’s Notes
- If you have never had a glass of Passaggio 2012 Unoaked Chardonnay, you are in for a treat. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this clean, crisp Chardonnay really showcases the amazing-quality grapes from which it is made. Its brilliant pale straw color precedes green apple, pear, tropical fruit, lemon-lime and a robust minerality on the nose. The clean, lingering finish presents layers of lemon, melon, stonefruit, slight lime and a nice acidity balanced with mineral notes.
This beauty pairs well with most seafood and chicken dishes. Go ahead and enjoy a bottle or two today with friends and family… Cheers!
