Balletto Estate Chardonnay 2013
This light-straw colored wine is both complex and elegant, showing its cool-climate heritage with concentrated flavors and a dark and lasting texture that has perfectly bright citrus tones for balance. It opens with warm spices, ripe pear and lemon aromas. Its distinctly Chardonnay. The various aromas overlap and mingle, producing an ever changing bouquet that is the hallmark of our Chardonnay. New oak has been used sparingly to enhance the wine with subtle toasted and vanilla aromas, rather than dominate the aroma profile. The texture and balance are spot on, making it one of those wines that draws you in for another sip. The finish lasts for several minutes and is both tart and creamy with lingering stone fruit and creme brulee. Slight tannins accentuate and compliment the lush texture.This wine is easy to enjoy at the dinner table. It has the rare quality of being lush and refreshing at the same time and will enhance a wide variety of foods. Because of its tartness and texture, it will pair well with salty foods like aged cheeses, roasted sardines and oysters. It can also be paired with foods based on its creamy side and compliment rich soups like butternut squash and potato leek, or a wide variety of roasted white meats and vegetables.
