Folie A Deux - Chardonnay

Awards:  90 Points Wine Enthusiast

Indicative of its cool climate origins, this wine has a bright acidity beneath notes of sweet melon, golden apple and bright tropical, perfumed pear. Flavors of ripe vanilla, mandarin, toasted marshmallow, butterscotch, banana, and citrus blossom are accompanied by a creamy mid-palate. This wine is medium-bodied, round and smooth with uplifting acidity and a balanced finish. For an excellent pairing, serve the Folie à Deux Chardonnay with baked salmon topped with herbs of dill and freshsqueezed lemon, or try it alongside white mushroom truffle pasta. 

Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this Chardonnay was selected from premier vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in French, American and Hungarian (22% new) oak barrels to maintain bright acidity, add complexity and showcase the variety’s rich fruit flavors.

Tasting Notes
Our 2015 Chardonnay embodies the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay style— brimming with aromas of baked apple, ripe pear, caramel and toasted pastry. Silky and round on the palate, the wine’s lingering honeyed finish shows soft crème brulée notes and nice acidity. This is the perfect wine to pair with a Camembert French cheese plate drizzled with local honey and almond halves, or with panna cotta topped with fresh berries for dessert.
