In our signature Pavone bottle (Pavone translates from Italian to Peacock in English), this custom Chardonnay/Viognier blend is made up of grapes from three distinct vineyards (24% Chardonnay from the Boyd Vineyard on Montebello, 29% Chardonnay from the Bruzzone Vineyard in Felton & 47% Viognier from Marsha's Vineyard in Sebastopol). Each lot was vinified and barrel-aged separately in neutral French oak to supplement its sophisticated fruit profile, and then blended prior to bottling. It has a fragrant bouquet reminiscent of a summer garden, with overflowing jasmine, blossoming orange trees and a hint of honeysuckle. The palate is a tropical medley of guava, tangerine, kiwi and just a touch of lychee, with mouth-watering acidity that is delicately balanced by a crisp dry finish. This medium-bodied white wine will complement a wide variety of dishes - everything from creamy Brie cheese, fresh vegetables and grilled seafood to spicy Thai or Indian cuisine.
The perfect hostess gift!
