2011 Unoaked Chardonnay
The next Next Generation
We are very pleased to welcome back an Operative favorite, today. The last time we featured this wine (the 2010 vintage), our Operatives scooped up every last bottle. We waited in eager anticipation for this latest vintage to be available. It was worth the wait.
Today’s 2011 Passagio Unoaked Chardonnay is a light-hearted and very approachable wine, making it a delightful appetizer or solo-sipping wine. In time for your springtime picnics or early evening soirées, this is the sort of wine that you’ll want to have in ample supply. Especially at today’s fantastic price.
One of the lightest Chardonnays we’ve ever seen, with very pale straw yellow hues. The edges glint in the light when swirled.
Bright and fresh, with quince and mixed light citrus including Meyer lemon.
Jasmine flower, delicate pineapple, lemon rind, subtle savory herbs, underripe white peach and underripe pear.
Tart and lighthearted, recalling the delicate flavors of pineapple and lemon experienced at the first sip.
Serve this lighter wine on the patio, with an assortment of light cheeses or strawberries and fresh whipped cream.
