J. Bookwalter Readers Chardonnay 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  634162

This is an exciting blend of Chardonnay with 24% Viognier. Both were harvested at night to preserve the brightness of the fruit. The Chardonnay was harvested first, and the Viognier was added to the fermentation one week later. The result is a wine with tantalizing orange blossom floral tones, grapefruit, pear and peach. The finish is long and textured. Try this with salmon, or chicken in a Dijon-tarragon cream sauce. (Vintages panel, April 2018)
