Landmark Vineyards - Overlook - Chardonnay
Overview: Overlook Chardonnay was crafted from 42 separate blocks of grapes sourced from premium Sonoma County vineyards. Working closely with our grower partners throughout the growing season in such prestigious appellations such as the Petaluma Gap, Sonoma Carneros and the Russian River Valley gives winemaker Greg Stach the high-quality fruit this bottling deserves. Enjoy this award-winning Chardonnay with family and friends.
Tasting Notes: Golden highlights shine through the yellow core. The nose is powerful, and initially the wine shows the trademark tree fruits of apples and pears with lemon curd, but the time in bottle has revealed the savory notes of chamomile tea, almond, and bread. The palette is brighter than the nose would lead you to believe with moderately high acidity offering a refreshing freshness that pierces through the flavors of lemon curd, baked apple, dried pears. Mineral notes and toasted oak are evident on the lengthy finish.
Pairing: Elegant with distinct notes of citrus, stone fruit, and floral complexities that are refined by an expressive minerality that is present throughout the mid-palette and finish. These aspects make it an excellent pairing with the classic “plateau de fruits de mer,” a traditional seafood platter with oysters, clams, prawns. crab, and other delicacies from the ocean.
