Guy Drew Vineyards Chardonnay

Guy Drew Vineyards Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: This wine is very fruity. Starting with the ripe lemon and banana aromas then pear and kiwi fruit, mango and a taste of honey. It has nice acidity and a lot of weight on the palate. The color is a light straw yellow and is our favorite summer white that doesn't loose anything at fridge temperature.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay:
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
