2011 Napa Valley Chardonnay
California: Napa Valley
The Food Friendliest
We are pleased to welcome Sempre Vive back to our pages!
Winner of a coveted Wine Spies Intrigue Award in 2012, Sempre Vive makes its comeback with its delightfully bright and exciting 2011 Napa Valley Chardonnay. Built to be enjoyed with a wide assortment of dishes, this wine would shine with nearly any food - even more difficult or ‘non-traditional’ pairings like a loaded pizza or a fatty Prime Rib.
With high, bright citrus notes and a clean finish, this is a true food-lover’s Chardonnay.
Drinking beautifully now, we recommend that you save some for your fall and winter holiday entertaining.
Pale straw yellow with perfect clarity and a springy surface when swirled.
Fresh and light on the nose with young pear, light citrus, brioche and wet river rock. As the wine warms slightly, it reveals fresh lime leaf, vanilla and subtle orange blossom notes.
Very fresh and very bright, with citrus, under-ripe pear, under-ripe white peach, dried apricot, pineapple, green apple and flinty mineral.
Light, long, slightly drying and refreshing with persistent citrus.
Enjoy this very bright wine with a wide variety of foods, from an endive salad with pears and bacon to a variety of hard, strong cheeses. We’ll be enjoying ours with a roast chicken with fresh herbs and fresh mandarin slices.
