Mission Briefing

Perfect Pairing

Today, we are thrilled to feature the Bellacana Vineyards 2013 Alexander Valley Chardonnay. Earlier this year, the 2012 vintage of today’s wine became our best-selling white wine of all time.

This wine is even better than the 2012.

What makes today’s wine even more special was that it was made by Miro Tcholakov, who is one of our best-selling winemakers of all time. This is one potent pairing!

On the nose, this wine is bright and fresh, with pineapple, granny Smith apple, butterscotch, orange blossom, white peach and pear.

On the palate, the wine is elegant and very soft on entry with bold flavors of lemon curd, vanilla custard, pear, white peach, lime leaf, lemongrass and Meyer lemon.

Those who have had the good fortune to have tasted the 2012 will be sure to stock up on today’s excellent new 2013 vintage. Those who love the wines of Miro Tcholakov need no further encouragement to partake of today’s very highly recommended superb value 2013 Bellacana Chardonnay.
