CP Chardonnay

Descriptions:

Nestled in the rolling hills and vineyards halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, along California’s famed Central Coast. The Paso Robles wine grape growing region’s climate is perfect, with a long growing season of warm days and cool evenings that give rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavour profiles that translate beautifully in your glass.

This is a truly beautiful chardonnay. Just the right balance of tropical fruit, pear, stone fruits and citrus with light touches of vanilla and oak for balance. Well-structured, crisp, clean and sexy with sweet fruit flavours mingling with light minerals and oak, leading to a wonderful, long, rich, lingering finish.
