Hendry Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2016
|California, Napa Valley
Yellow-gold color. Green/golden apple and spice aromatics. Soft, medium-weight palate, with layered flavors of tangy fruit, and spicy oak and apple peel on the finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine are salmon, Manchego cheese, white pizzas, especially with shrimp, crab cakes, chicken, turkey, and all the trimmings. This wine's food pairing versatility and non-malolactic, acidic brightness make friends for it on both sides of the Chardonnay divide.
Lemon, melon and accents of floral honeysuckle invite the palate into this rounded and moderately rich white wine, which has an earthy funkiness on the finish.
