Mission Briefing

Codename:

Kissed by the coast

The climate in west Paso Robles lends itself to fantastic Chardonnay. Conditions there mimic the conditions where white Burgundies are born. Hot days are followed by evenings of coastal fog that then cool the grapes. This puts just the right amount of stress on the vines, creating distinctive and delicious wines.

Today’s wine is a bright, fresh, tasty Chardonnay that we recommend as a fantastic company to a very wide array of food pairings. Enjoy as a first-course wine or with something more complex like a savory roasted herbed poultry dish.

This wine is delicious right out of the chiller, but if you allow the wine to warm slightly in the glass it really springs to life, revealing additional aromas and flavors.

At 50% off, today’s wine gets our heartiest recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Delicate, pale, golden hues radiating from its core to a slightly lighter rim.

Smell:

Almost ethereal on the nose, with notes of Meyer lemon, white peach, and green apple overtop slight notes of brioche, nutmeg, and cardamom.

Taste:

Crisp, bright, and wonderfully fresh, the palate is very reminiscent of the nose, with the added flavors of toasted almond and a subtle caramel.

Finish:

Exceedingly delicate and refreshing, with a lingering finish of slightly caramelized baked apple on the back palate.

Pairing:

This versatile, food-friendly wine is easily paired with a wide variety of dishes. We might recommend a fresh prawn risotto served with asparagus and meyer lemon, with a sprinkle of asiago cheese overtop.
