North Valley Chardonnay 2011 750 ml
A striking green-gold color gives this wine a pristine, youthful appearance. Exotic aromas of lime zest, fresh tropical fruits and honey dominate with subtle notes of toast and vanilla bean just under the surface. Effortless, refined and sleek on the entry, the palate is bright with just enough richness to provide gravitas and project the essence of ripe Chardonnay fruit. Citrus and fresh apple linger with a wisp of toast and honey on the dry, pure mouthwatering finish. This represents a renaissance in the promise of New World Chardonnay and pays homage to the Burgundian precedents in Chablis and Mersault.
