2020 Charlie Rae Chardonnay

Available:  In Stock $38.00
Size: 750 ml

Our Charlie Rae Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented and goes through malolactic fermentation which lends this wine to be our Classic California style Chardonnay.  As the 2020 vintage opens, the warm apple pie notes greet you and the fruit notes come rushing in with banana, pear, peach, and a hint of lemon peel.  The wine continues to open with caramel notes, vanilla, and butterscotch.  As the wine hits your palate, the toasted caramel and smooth vanilla are reminiscent of Werther's caramels.  This wine pairs well with white bean chili soup, grilled salmon with balsamic-honey apples, or roasted butternut squash, tarragon, and thyme pork loin.
