Orchard Station Winery
2012 Sonoma County Chardonnay
California: Sonoma County
In the nude
And pulling into the station is today’s delectable Sonoma County Chardonnay, coming to us from our new friends at Orchard Station Winery. Today’s wine was handcrafted by winemaker David Cohen, well known for producing wines under the Moondance Cellars label.
Today’s Chardonnay went through 100% stainless steel fermentation, resulting in a wine that is incredibly crisp, refreshing, and just about perfect for a warm afternoon picnic. This crispness, paired with a heady flavor profile of fresh fruit, citrus, and honey, elevates today’s wine to a level we don’t often see at this price point.
At $19.99, today’s wine is an absolute steal. The only question: how large a getaway vehicle will you need?
Nearly a straw yellow throughout the glass, with voluptuous viscosity.
Bright and refreshing, with fresh fruit notes of guava, pineapple, and honeydew melon framed by honeycomb and lime flower.
Outright delicious on the palate, with Meyer lemon, tangerine, and fresh honeydew melon laid overtop a touch of sweet honey, subtle white tea, and an elegant note of creme brûlée.
Crisp and fruity, with a delightful acidity, today’s wine has a silken mouthfeel and body that’s not usually found in an unoaked Chard.
Moroccan spiced chicken, slow cooked in a tagine with olives, lemon, and garlic.
