Oh, Grgich, how you make even the most red wine fan swoon over the golden liquid that is your Chardonnay!

Today’s 2012 Estate Grown Napa Valley Chardonnay carries on the tradition of iconic Chardonnay from Grgich Hills Estate. It delivers all of the heady fresh fruit character and elegant feel that have made this wine a classic, vintage after successive vintage.

The spring and summer months are coming, so you’ll want to have plenty on hand - but be sure to enjoy a bottle or two in the meanwhile. You may find that it warms your soul.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pale straw yellow with glinting golden highlights.

Smell:

Classic California Chardonnay aromas minus the heavy toast and buttered popcorn. Orchard fruits aplenty, lemon, lime, nougat, and just a touch of toast.

Taste:

Wonderful flavors that are highlighted by lemon, apple, white peach, fig, and a touch of vanilla.

Finish:

This iconic Chardonnay has a bit of oak toast and cream on the finish, but it’s known more for balance than butter. A gorgeous clean, crisp, and flavorful follow through.

Pairing:

A roasted chicken with fresh herbs and lemon would be perfect. Halibut would be just as delicious.
