The ripening season was mild & dry, excellent conditions for grapes destined for our Verve Chardonnay. When picked, they had incredibly intense fruit concentration combined with the steely acid backbone that completes this modern style.
The new Verve shows distinctive grapefruit & lemon on the nose alongside some mineral components. The palate almost gives you the illusion of richness due to the intensity of the fruit, then the crisp, dry finish kicks and lingers in an extended aftertaste. It drinks beautifully in its youth, as a fresh & vibrant Chardonnay. With Age this wine will develop further toffee and honey flavors. Drink for 10yrs+
Some great foods to match would be the freshest of crayfish, something rich like kingfish or our local favorite, Flounder.
