2012 Chardonnay
About This Wine:
Picchetti subscribes to the notion (popular in Chardonnay’s spiritual home of Burgundy) that oak, applied deftly, can round out and enrich a wine without interfering with its natural fruit flavor. This hedonistic golden-hued vintage is made up of grapes from our Montebello Estate vineyards, which were hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed. The juice was then aerated and racked to barrel (75% new French oak) for 15-months, with full secondary malolactic fermentation and aging sur lees for the first 7-months. It has a fresh bouquet of honeysuckle flowers, with a touch of vanilla pod in the background. The palate opens to textured flavors of apple, jasmine and crushed rock, and it has a refreshingly crisp acidity with a prolonged finish that reveals just the right amount of nuanced oak. Enjoy this multi-layered wine chilled with creamy seafood pasta, grilled shrimp, Alaskan King crab with drawn butter, fresh summer vegetables or a soft Brie cheese. A white wine for the red wine connoisseur!
