2015 Grafter California Chardonnay

Ripe, concentrated fruit flavors of lemon curd, apple and pear are showcased on the palate, with a hint of baking spices. Partial barrel-fermentation and sur-lie ageing provide a creamy texture, while the balance of fruit produced in stainless steel helps to provide focus and vibrancy. The final result is a wine that will please both those that appreciate richer Chardonnays and those that look for pure fruit expression. Enjoy this versatile Chardonnay with richer seafood and lemon roasted chicken.
