Pepperwood Grove Chardonnay 2010
This Chardonnay immediately shows far more intense and intriguing flavors than other comparative wines; aromatics of vanilla bean, light, toasted hazelnut, and lemon sorbet burst out of the glass. On the palate, initial crisp flavors of green apple and biscotti contrast with a hint of grapefruit, toasted marshmallow, and fresh lime on the finish. Rich, mouth filling layers are balanced by crisp, clean acidity, true to the Pepperwood Grove style. Aged on American oak staves for only six months, the fruit character is subtly augmented by oak aging to create a style with depth and broad appeal. Pair our Pepperwood Grove Chardonnay with grilled halibut and a grapefruit salsa, or a half dozen barbequed oysters and a fresh squeeze of lemon.
