2011 TRUEBLOOD Carneros Napa Valley Chardonnay
California: Napa Valley: Carneros
Love at first sip
Today’s 2011 TRUEBLOOD Carneros Napa Valley Chardonnay marks a welcome return for Vampire Vineyards, who have wowed us once again with their exquisite white wine.
Possessing an incredibly lush and lavish mouthfeel, this is one luxurious Chardonnay. Our tasting panel raved about the notes of tangerine and orange blossom that seem to leap straight from the glass.
We highly recommend stocking up on this one for the warmer months. Just be sure not to pair this wine with too much garlic!
Golden hued and viscous, reminiscent of summer sunshine.
Refined and very elegant, with white peach and honeydew melon slowly trailed by orange oil, white flower petal, and subtle caramel.
Downright luxurious on the palate, with hints of tangerine, baked Granny Smith apple, and orange blossom laid overtop sweet lemongrass, lavender leaf, and honeycomb.
Very full, with an incredibly pleasant mouthfeel, the finish features plenty of smooth and silky fruit notes that only slowly fade away.
A perfect pairing with a crab salad, served with a creamy avocado and dill dressing.
