Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from the Bacigalupi Vineyard is terrific. It opens with an attractive cantaloupe, oak and lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild mineral influenced pear with notes of vanilla oak and butterscotch. I also detected hints of green apple and faint honey. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with crispy potato-crusted haddock served over sweet corn and bacon chowder. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2017 Bacigalupi Chardonnay has a nose of lemon zest and vanilla bean. The palate opens with red pear and Meyer lemon, and brioche toast and honey comb notes on the finish. Like well-made Chardonnay from great vineyards around the world this wine benefits from getting some air, will age for years, and is best when served chilled around 50 degrees. This wine will evolve in the bottle for many years to come. A terrific wine from one of Sonoma County's top sites for Chardonnay.
