Maddalena - Chardonnay - Monterey
Overview: Maddalen Chardonnay comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French and 20% American oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Maddalena Chardonnay greets the nose with an array of ripe fruit aromas, including citrus, guava, and orange peel. The round mouth shows depth and body, complemented by forward flavors of tropical fruit. A touch of oak adds complexity. Balanced acidity creates structure and a long, complex finish.
Pairing: Best paired with roasted walnuts, goat cheese, or mussels.
