2016 Terroir Chardonnay American Oak
A classic Chardonnay that has not yet reached its peak. Just starting to open up and we expect it will be late 2019 before the aromas and flavours will really shine.
The vibrant acidity balances very well with its aromas and flavours of orange blossom, orange peel, green apple, vanilla, cloves, spice, caramel, and butterscotch producing a flavourful finish on the palate.

Produced from fruit harvested October 12, 2016 at 24 Bx from the Strewn Home Farm vineyard. Following pressing, the juice was racked to 100% American oak barrels for fermentation and subsequent maturation with occasional battonage over 10 months. Following blending the wine was sterile filtered before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
The earthy note is a great complement to dishes with cooked mushrooms such as Grilled Portobello Risotto, Baked Snapper with a Mushroom Duxelle or Wild Mushroom Crepes

Full body, oak driven, complex and not for the faint at heart, but oh so good. For full review please visit: www.twilightwines.com
